    Have you installed the VIA chipset drivers? http://www.viaarena.com/?PageID=2

    Is USB 2.0 ( or Enhanced USB ) enabled in your BIOS?

    I really doubt it would take a BIOS flash to make USB 2.0 work in a Pentium 4 board.

    To use USB 2 you must actually have a USB 2 hub, it's not just software.

    Can you tell us the motherboard manufacturer and model#?
    The number you gave is for a VIA chipset.
    I can't imagine a motherboard that supports Vista doesn't have USB 2.0
    Unless that's the problem; the motherboard doesn't support Vista, so there are no compatible USB drivers.
