You also can buy Parallel-to-Midi adapters, I think. But USB of course
is easier. 

BTW: I would stay clear from the M-Audio midi devices, not because
they wouldn't work (AFAIK they do) but you'll have to fiddle with
firmware loaders and such. Edirol or Audiotrak don't need firmware IIR
and thus are much closer to "plug and play" installation.
