I gave my g-son my old computer. It started with Windows 95 and now has 98SE. He bought himself a digital camera so I downloaded all the software into the computer and turned it around to plug the camera in and WHAT?? No plug-ins for the USb cable. :>( So......what I am wondering, can I install one or better yet, buy one of the adapters made for computers without USB ports? Or am I asking for trouble (I usually am) I don't want to put his software in my computer as I already have enough programs in it, but if all else fails.........who knows? Do you think the Motherboard can handle it? Thanks for any info/advice.

Make sure that camera's software is supported by Windows 98SE before you go through the hassle of installing a USB add-on card. A lot of new hardware and software is coming out that's only supported by Windows XP and not by Windows 98/98SE or Windows ME.
