what you're lookign for is called a usb hub

here is a four port hub:

and here is a 7 port hub:

note: that one requires external power


i cant seem to find a 5 port hub for some reason....

i dont think there are 5 port hubs.... unless you find some cheap jippo one. you oculd also buy a usb pci card that you slot inside your computer... very easy to do and it means no messy wires or anything

The PCI slot ones are slightly faster as well, because PCI is faster than USB.
