This looks like, assuming it's 'standard', the typical motherboard 
header connector to a DB9 serial that would go in an expansion slot 
opening. You should be able to pick one up at Canada Computer, 
ComputerXsess (sp?), K-W Surplus, or TechnoTrade.

- quite likely, assuming you've not only used laptops for the last 
decade, you have one in your house already. One of those motherboard / 
case cables left in the box 'cause you didn't have a use for it at the 
time.

What's a BeagleBoard? [I saw USB powered, SD slot, and see HDMI cable, 
but that's as far as I got.]
