with 98se on it it's probably 5-7 years old and a few more on/off cycles aren't going to kill it. some old mother boards just aren't up to a lot of what's in 98se.
in an older computer years ago, usb was referred to in the bootup sequence but i was unable to get it to work yet the mb said it was capable.
this was back when usb was starting to be an integral part of the computer not something that had to be added card/adapter to make it work.
