    Has anyone made a driver to run usb in 95a? If so please post a link where to download it. My boss is getting a digital camera for X-mas and I picked up a pci usb card for his p133 computer. Its an old Amptron with 32 megs of ram which is probably one of the best old boards I've seen. An upgrade to 95b or 98se aren't desirable options but may be a last resort. Would 98 slow things down on this old box? It seems like this box was made more for win95.

    Yes, the computer will run slower with Windows 98 installed. No, there's no USB support for Windows 95a. Depending on the camera, it may only be compatible with Windows 98 or later. It may be a nice old board, but it's too old to run new hardware. There are some great new boards on the market.

    I believe you can get them for parallel port operation.
    They are usually a little dearer.
    Best of luck,
