Well USB to Serial ... iam sure a connector or something like that exists. But wont be cheap.
Iam sure you will find a new tablet faster than such a connector :) Which is probably a special thing.
Maybe it is time for you to buy a new tablet or you clean-up your old PC and use it for painting only until you have the money to buy a new USB tablet.

As far as the driver goes, just go to wacom's website, and im sure they have all the latest drivers there for you. I had to go there to get vista driver's for my intuos 3.

Are you running 64bit flavors of the OS? If so, that old tablet won't run, even if you do find something like a serial to USB adapter, apparently.

I upgraded to XP64bit and discovered as much whentrying to install my old Wacom Art Z II. Ended up having to uograde to an Intuos 3
