Obsolete technology I'm afraid.
ASRock too is usually the only one to include Legacy connectivity in there products.
For this one I am afraid you are out of luck. Unless you drop back to a used earlier CPU platform.

Extra Added Cost,
Using a Slot PCI
I am tring to keep it simple and little bit lower on COST.
What push me away from AsRock, 1 year warranty, where every body is going to 5 year.
I would love to go with Asus cause they RAM is local in GTA :)

Sorry I have to agree with MIR I see at least 75-200 dead motherboards a month at our service center lots of them in year 2 or 3. that being said we see about 1000-2500 dead Hard drives a month mostly seagate thank god their rma team is the only thing good in that company. What about going with FM1 to get what you need? I'm sure there is some other options out there?

Well, I really would need to stick around with Intel Platform. I have some proprietary applications; which run much better on Intel Platform). Any other platform they often crash or put some heat on CPU, Memory and Chipset.
Since my computer usally run 16-18 Hrs a day so I rather run cooler
My current have system have all the legacy stuff I need 4 GiG with Xeon 3100 is chuging along just fine....

Might I ask why do you need all that?

Floppy: Transfer the floppy to a USB key using an old computer
COM: COM to USB converter (No need for PCI)
IDE: Why?

But if I only refer to your original post, just get the COM to USB converter with that mobo you found and it's done!

Vista 64-Bit Compatible 12 inch FTDI CHIP DB-9 Serial Adapter High Speed USB SERIAL RS-232 USBG-RS232-F12 LOW PRICE $11.14

Thanks.

Thanks.
I need IDE for my Custom Firmware IDE Optical Drive; which allow me to do stuff; which normal optical drive won't let you.
I have old softwares which work fine with Native com ports. Other wise I have two or three different Kind of com port; cause not a single can offer what I need. It is simple for me to get a built in com port.
They only port I can let go is LPT port!
