but wait, where is the hole for the LPT port?

In reviewing the manual for that motherboard I see there is a port on the motherboard for an LPT cable. If you wish to continue using your current printer you may be able to get a cable, if one wasn't included with your motherboard.

Might call first just to make sure it is the right one.

I spotted the MB port as well.  The link you provided is the correct part, presently out of stock with pc connection.  Newegg doesn't seem to carry them at all.  Nor does Mwave or Directron. Going to check TigerDirect and a couple others, hopefully closer.  Shipping costs more than the part!
