Default Non-USB MIDI Interface for Laptop?

I have an MBox, and a laptop with only one USB port, which has to be used (without a hub) for the MBox.

Does anyone know of MIDI interfaces for laptops that aren't USB-based?

I have a 9-pin serial port, a firewire card, and a spare Cardbus slot, any of which might be used for a MIDI interface...

Thanks,
C.

You might look around for a midiman Portman.

Serial to midi.

Excellent suggestion - the Portman is not easily visible from the top level of M/Audio's site. Have to check out their online store.

For those interested:

Both serial port and parallel port versions.
