rickyjune,
All you need is a USB 2.0 Controller Card (Probably a PCI Extansion card is you have one available)

Link Depot PCI USB 2.0 controller card - $7.99

hope this helps.

If it is a notebook your talking about you will need a PCCard USB2 adapter. They usually have 2 or 4 USB ports integrated. Some of them also combine a firewire connection. PCCard adapters will be slightly more expensive than PCI Adapters.
