Add on firewire port for laptop? Laptop pre-FireWire

Hi

I just wondered, is it possible to make my laptop FireWire compatible? It has all the ports in its time and is a Toshiba Satellite 1800-712. It’s just if I can, it will save money in buying other goods later on such as triple interfaced external hard discs (because of USB 2.0) and so on.

Any help greatfully appreciated.

Thanks.

You can get PCMCIA cards that include a firewire port.

Thanks for that.
