I have some general questions about USB 2.0.

1) Is it supported in Windows XP?
2) Seems like most of the computers on sale today(Dell, Compaq and Gateway) doesn't have USB 2.0 ports.  Only gateway has it on their most expensive model: (  Will it be hard to add it in the future?

1) Yes, USB 2.0 will be supported by XP with help of some drivers, see: http://www.usb.org/data/press/press20/2002_02_27_usb.pdf

2) USB ports can be easily added with a ("on the horizon")USB PCI CARD.
