Default Need to make an EISA card work

I have an EISA card that cant be replaced. My new system does not have a
slot. Is there any conversion kit for USB or PCI or anything?

Thanks.

There are very expensive newer (relatively) Pentium 4 boards with
an ISA slot. Outside of that your best bet is to get an older
system that still has an ISA. There is no cost-effective
conversion kit for most purposes. Such parts are so uncommon
that if one exists (there probably is one "somewhere", try a
Google search) it will cost a few hundred $.

Perhaps tell us a bit more about what this EISA card does. Only
alternative is to find an old PC with EISA (not just ISA or PCI slots).
Perhaps an old Compaq server on Ebay or somesuch
