Before going firewire, I was using the PCMCIA card: "Echo Indigo I/O" 
and it works well and is well supported. Of course, you will need a 
small mixer because the I/O is just a simple 2in-2out (both stereo 1/8") 
with just a volume control on the card. I have a boss 4 channel mixer I 
used with it.

Be careful, don't buy the "DJ". I almost made that mistake. It's also 
called an "Indigo", so I almost missed the "DJ" part and almost bought 
it. It also look just like the "I/O".

Hope that helped,
