I have had a similar feed back from a different W98 user before. It
seems that W98 is that different in lots of aspects from later Windows
versions that I fear a "one size fits all" solution will be hard to
find, at least if USB and stuff like this is concerned.

Sorry for the pessimistic approach, I wish I had been able to tell you
something more encouraging! 

73s and my best regards
Ulrich, DF6JB
