  2. Yes, you can install a PCI card with USB2 ports *if* your motherboard
    supports it.

    And the OS needs to support it as well. That Aptiva is pre-W95. It would
    need W98se for many USB devices.

    Curious, where are you sticking that stick in? There are no usb ports on
    circa 1993 pcs.

    A girl said that to me in college once. Heck, after hours of drinking
    grain enhanced Red Koolaid out of a garbage can how was I to know?
