Using Windows as a Glorified Chart Recorder??

I'm wondering if anybody knows of an inexpensive way to use an 
MS-DOS/Windows based machine to aquire analoque data in the same manner 
as a chart recorder. I have looked at a bunch of specialized commercial 
chromatography software but they are all outrageously expensive.  I would 
think there must be cheap analoque to digital boards available for this 
type of application as well as inexpensive commercial software or 
preferably good shareware/freeware.  In fact, I would think there may 
even be external boards available that can interface with a serial 
port.  The interface of the software doesn't have to be fancy provided 
you can cut/paste to it, and export the chromatogram into a 
drawing/presentation program.  For my purposes automated peak integration 
is not important provided chromatograms can be printed to scale.
