    Is it possible to boot from a win98SE or ME startup disc and have the
    USB ports available as well as have the following devices attached to
    the USB port be recognized: CDROM, flash (thumb) drive, USB hard drive
    enclosure?

    It appears the BIOSes on the machines I want to do this with recognize
    the USB ports.

    If so, could someone help by explaining which drivers one needs to add
    to the startup disc and how exactly one needs to modify the
    autoexec.bat and config.sys files or other files that need to be added
    or edited? Thanks.

    Google type: usb dos press enter second link.

    http://www.bootdisk.com/usb.htm Take a look here.

    If you are just want to get in to a system to transfer files you could
    boot of a Live Linux cd. Or what I did was make a live Windows XP
    called Bart PE http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/
