advice on laptop interface

    At the moment I'm stuck with nothing but a laptop for recording, and I'm trying to figure out the best solution for an audio interface.

    I have a mixer, so preamps are of no concern. I typically only record 1 or 2 tracks at a time. I've never trusted USB, but am not opposed to trying it out. I have one firewire port, and a firewire hard drive, and am concerned about issues with daisy chaining that and an interface.

    The last 4 or 5 years I've been using a Delta 44 card on a desktop system, which was perfect for what I need - 4 analog ins/outs to match my mixer, nothing fancy.

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated

    My laptop:
    HP Pavilion ZT3000
    1.8G Pentium M
    1G RAM
    Windows XP Professional

    if you don't want to go into the upperlevel then the firewire 410 from m-audio, is a good choice...
