    It has no ethernet port either.

    It's an old computer, probably 12 years old. Without doing a whole lot, could I get usb ports installed and working?

    The computer is not with me at the moment, so I can't do that.

    Ok
    If you have spare PCI slots then you should be able to add a usb and an ethernet card
