A cheaper alternative that I have had good luck with is the Lava Quattro 4 port PCI serial card.  Available on the Internet for less than $80.  Lava has a lifetime guarantee with no exceptions and honored it when I got nailed by lightening two years ago.  To find out more about the card try www.lavalink.com (if my memory is correct).

The usual, I have no connection with Lava except for being a satisfied user of this product.

I use the 4 port PCI cards from Byterunner, in fact I have two of them in
one machine so I have COM1 through COM10.  They work fine.

ISA is dead as you  have realized.
