Yep, you can just install a PCI card to give you this Should be rather cheap, and should give you around 4 connections

Where abouts are you?

In the UK, this is a nice site:

www.microdirect.co.uk

http://www.microdirect.co.uk/(15769)...-CDLSB001.aspx
http://www.microdirect.co.uk/(2985)U...or-Win-98.aspx

Cheap competitive prices. I've used them for ages now, and wouldn't turn my head on them. Excellent service
