Parallel/USB interface cable ?

  The Gaf 10:41 30 Dec 2003

I am resurrecting my 4 yr old Compaq laptop for my stepson who is going to uni. The o/s is Windows98 but the laptop does not have any USB ports. Is it possible to buy a connection with a parallel end and USB end ? I am trying to connect a CF cardreader with USB connections to this laptop. Any help would be appreciated. I anticipate the answer to be negative !

If the laptop has a 32-bit PCMCIA (cardbus) slot then you can fit a USB adapter click here The page also has a USB to parallel lead listed.
