you'd want to look for a serial to USB adapter. i use this particular one with windows xp but I have not tried it with windows 7 -> http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3120513

it requires a driver install but now that you know what to look for, you can find one that works on windows 7 or research if this one does.
