Why is life so difficult ?

I have an Aiptek graphics tablet to install on my Toshiba Satellite A30.
The Tablet comes conveniently with a triple headed lead - a PS2, a 9pin serial, and one of the older 5pin Din keyboard plugs.
On the rear of the Toshiba is lan, usb's,phone, printer, monitor, and what looks like a ps2 socket but isn't.
On the sides are a couple of others that I can't yet figure out.
In total, there are 12 types of socket on the laptop, and three plugs on the tablet.

But none match.

What have I done to deserve this.......

I think it's sake to post, now that Fruit Bat is probably asleep.
Anyway, I took his clairvoyant advise and bought an adapter, and all is OK.

Quietly tiptoes away.........
