change of system needs new connection

I have changed to XP on Dell, from W 98. My former joystick was serial connected (15 pin) but the Dell has only 9 or 25 pin . Can I usefully buy an adaptor between my 15 joystick and connect up to the 15 on the XP processor? The joystick is Saitek and about 3 years old.
(I could buy a new joystick with USB but thought I'd try this first)
Cheers

usb joysticks are very cheap and will give better results.
