There are 25 pin serial ports for PCs. If the 25 pin port on the PC has
actual pins (DB-25 male), its likely a serial port. If its a DB-25 female,
then I suspect that Sean is correct and you're dealing with a parallel port.
I just picked up a couple of dual 9 pin serial PCI cards on ebay for about
$15.00 plus shipping. Alternately, if you have USB on your machine, you can
purchase a USB / Serial adapter. Its cheaper to get a 9 pin serial card is
you have the available slot, but both work just fine.
