Here is an explanation and a picture of a serial port. Look at your
machine whether you have one of those. Usually they are present.

Very few new machines come with a serial port these days. Some
have a header on the motherboard but no cable to the outside
of the case. You have to buy a header-to-DB-9 cable.


In fact most laptops and netbooks these days DO come with a serial port - for connecting projectors.
