    I bought a new Fujitsu C-6631 Laptop, It has NO serial port in it. I recently bought products that needs a serial port. (Earthmate GPS) and (Nextel dial-up service kit). I tried the serial- to LPT port adapter, but nothing.
    then I went with a serial to USB connector, it crashed my WinME.

    I am now attempting to load WinXP, in hopes of a more stable OS.
    Does anyone have any comments about the Serial to USB?
    Can the USB port serve as a serial port?
    Tips?
