My aunt gave me a printer that uses a USB port but my computer which is Pentium II system doesnt have a USB card. What kind of USB card do I have to look? Or else, is there a circuit that converts from USB port to parallel port?

If you have a spare PCI slot in your computer, PCI USB cards are freely available at very low cost. You only need a USB 1.0 card, it's more than fast enough for your printer, and with the release of USB 2.0 the older card prices have plummeted.
