Does the card require you to directly plug cords into the motherboard? If so, did you? Is your PCI card USB 2.0?

Sorry I don't have much knowledge of installing USB 2.0 on a 98 system.

For windows XP I would just go get Sp1, go to the device manager, right click the PCI card and press update drivers. There is also a device in WIN98, but I am not sure they work the same. No harm trying.
