Usage of an express card on laptops.

Hi, I purchased a Dell XPS LX501, i5-560m, 8gb ram, 500gb hdd, 2 usb 2.0 ports 1 usb 3.0/eSata combo port, BUT NO FIREWIRE NOR EXPRESS CARD SLOT!! I just finished chatting with a Dell sales rep. and according to her I can purchase the following item and connect it to my computer through the USB port, and then connect the firewire device to the adapter:
Connection would go:
1) USB cable between express card and computer port.
2) Firewire cable between express card and firewire device.
I repeat, the LX501 does not come with an Express Card Slot, and I would just like to know if what the sales rep. suggests is actually possible, since I have never seen this done before, and would like to know if anyone has the chance to test this out!!
