Hey everyone, if I asked this already, sorry.

My mom has an old crappy computer with Win98. I have some stuff I want to get off of it, but I can't find drivers for my USB drive. I have a Reactrix USB drive and the site didn't contain any drivers. Is there like a universal driver that I can use or anything like that? btw the pc is not very upgradeable, so there is little to no hope of seing xp on it. There is no CD burner and I can't add one. Plus the floppy drive is [email protected]#$%^ up and ruins any diskette you put in there. This sucks. Anything?

EDIT: Here is the homepage: www.reactrix.com

offtopic: IMO I think scottlc will really like the reactrix project. :emb: It was programmed in UNIX C.

If it's plain old Windows 98 then I think you're out of luck. That OS doesn't support USB.

I think you got it confused with Windows 95, which I think is supposed to have some USB support with OSR2. I never got it to work though :p.

Yeah, the Windows 95 OSR2 USB support is pretty weak. I believe some things like mice, keyboards and printers will work.

I tried using a digital Saitek joystick with OSR2 and it didn't work. That was the only USB device I tried using with it.
