Looking for ExpressCard Serial adapter (Lausanne)

If you don't know what it is, you likely don't have it :)

I am in a process of resetting BIOS password on my ThinkPad and that involves making an EEPROM dump from another machine using a serial interface... which happens to be another laptop. I have a USB-to-Serial adapter, but it doesn't do proper signaling emulation, so it doesn't work for the purpose.

If anyone has an ExpressCard/Serial card and could land it for few hours, I'd be hugely appreciative. I'm also trying to buy one, but no local shops have it in stock and the matter is somewhat urgent.

Thanks in advance. Don't forget your passwords and/or stay away from newer ThinkPads.
