How to use CommsLink with DB 9?

Hi, just bought an LZ64 with mains adaptor, 128k RAMPACK and CommsLink for about R$60 (Brazilian Real), wich is something like £10 (yeah, believe me, and it's perfect).
 
The problem is that my pc has no db25 serial port, just db9 and I want to build an adapter so I need to know the wiring numbers (1 on db9 is wired to 5 on db25, etc)
 
Thanks since now

Go to the next computer shop, and buy a 'serial 9 male to 25 female' adapter. You may also use a modem cable if the plugs are right (but not a 'null modem cable'). Both are cheap and widespread.
 
If you are really into soldering:
DB 9  nameDB 25
   1 *DCD*    8
   2   RXD    3
   3   TXD    2
   4   DTR   20
   5   GND    1
   6   DSR    6
   7   RTS    4
   8   CTS    5
   9   *RI*   22

The asterisks denote lines that are not used by the organiser.

Thanks a lot. If I can't find the adapter I will make mine.
