'[OT]: adding USB port to PC'

I have an Asus P5AB mother board running Win95. The mother board has header
pins for USB sockets. What will I need to get a 'working' USB port on my
PC.

Thanks

John

A bracket that has two USB connectors with cables to plug into yourt
motherbord, which mounts in an empty card slot position.  I know my local
PC joint sells tham for about $10, which I think is about $5 too high.  Of
course if I made them I'd think they should sell for $20...

realistically, a different operating system....

Windows 95 OSR2 does support it (look for the "B" in the version number when
you do My Computer>Properties)

but try finding a peripheral that expects to see win95 - I haven't. Win 98
and everything becomes relatively fine again.

Hardware wise, for about £2.50 from CPC or similar or £15 from PC world, a
backplane with 2 USB sockets and cable to the header, switch it on in the
BIOS, and hey presto! (almost)

Jameco has USB brackets/connectors a tad cheaper.

As well as the connectors you also need Win98 - W95 has a version
claiming to support USB but it doesn;t work most of the time and many
peripheral mfr.s software will refuse to install under it.

    Unfortunately Win95 mostly does not support USB, Win95C and above does
but it does it so poorly it's not worth the effort. Win98 is the practical
minimum for USB, so before you can even consider what hardware you need
you'll have to upgrade you're OS. TTYL

   Only for factory-test of USB devices or special-purpose
   dedicated machines; it's not terribly useful as a
   general-purpose USB solution.
