How can I connect an analog monitor to digital outlet?

My husband has just bought a new HP media center computer online, and we're having a problem. We have a flat panel HP monitor, with analog only (that we can see), and that has only an analog connector going to the computer. PROBLEM: The computer only has a digital connector. Without a huge outlay, is there a simple way to connect the monitor to the computer, we don't mind the loss of clarity. Thanks for your help.

about a 15-pin analog and a DVI digital plug?? If so, there are plenty of adapter plugs out there. Just google "analog monitor adapter".

and life goes on...
