PC data acquisition can encompass more than conventional D/A add-ons.  There are digital oscilloscopes, data loggers, and other D/A add-ons.  These may be PC bus boards, or may use PCMCIA, CompactFlashCard or other interfaces.  Other possibilities are embedded boards that include D/A features.  Here are a few links. 

ActiveWire, Inc makes a series of boards described thusly:  ActiveWire-USB with programmable I/O pins that can interface to anything.  Control the pins from your browser by HTML/ javascript or Visual Basic or C.  Macintosh,  Win95/98/2K/ME/XP, Linux, FreeBSD, and LabView drivers.  These provide an interesting and low-cost avenue to develop simple USB connected systems, or to prototype more complex designs.
