USB connection for LaserJet 5p

I have said LaserJet 5p. Despite its age, it still works perfectly. I've just acquired a new desktop which only supports USB printer connection. The HP printer only supports "Local Talk Port, Large Parallel Port, Small Parallel Port and IrDA-compliant Port". Is there a cheap way to connect my old printer?

You can get a USB to Parallel adapter, like a StarTech ICUSB1284.
