    You could post the error message here and we could try to help ypu with it, and yes, ypu need the drivers for it , they should come in a cd in the box, or the place were the Card was bought should have provide you with the drivers.

    If you can't find the drivers on a disk or CD in the box, you might try the manufacturer's website and download them....
    If that still doesn't work let us know we'll help you out a little further...weird things happen sometimes with PCI devices...especially with Win98...

    Hard to say without the exact message. If it is a conflict message I am guessing that it just might be device conflict for interrupt request (IRQ) and input/output ranges (I/O).

    You might check to see if anything is using IRQ 09 0r 10. Do you have the option to install anyway? If so I would do it, as all that should happen is that the USB card won't work. You then can use device manager to see what is conflicting, and (hopefully) resolve the conflict using the troubleshooter in WIN98

    Cheers
