Specs: Windows XP, 1GB
I have an old TV with only a coaxial cable port. No S-video or RCA port. How do I connect it to my PC and watch movies from my PC.

If what you refer to is the aerial RF input, there is no way to connect the TV set to your PC almost in an easy and cheap way. To feed video signals via coax cable you need a RF converter, a device quite expensive and not easy to be found.

Yikes! Just watch the movies on your monitor. The image quality will be a lot better on the monitor than on your old TV.

To move video from your PC to the cable jack on your TV, the video signal has to be converted several times:
From a pure digital signal to an analog VGA or S-Video signal.
From VGA (or S-Video) to Composite
From Composite to RF.

You lose quite a bit of quality after each conversion, especially to RF.
