Does anybody know where I can get an adapter to plug in my headset (headphones and mic) into the only audio plug?

I have the same issue so thought I'd give this topic a bump.

Managed to get one of the HP Minis from HN for $288.  Nice unit but it has a single 4 pin audio jack, my headset has two separate plugs for mic/ear.

Have checked DSE, Jaycar, Dealextreme and done a bit of a Google search for an adapter but no success.  I would have thought this would be a fairly common request so some organisation would make one.

Edited 09:50 28/12 to fix typos.

Don't use 'beefstew' as a password.  It's not stroganoff.

These 4 pin plugs are now pretty common, they're the same as the iPhone / iPod Touch, newer Nokia's and Blackberry's use.

A quick Google search gave this, I'm sure there would be cheaper places and it surprised me dealextreme didn't carry one but I couldn't see one when I quickly looked.

Found one:

bit pricey though, and therefore haven't bothered to check whether they ship to NZ and at what cost.  At least I now know they do exist.
