Can't get a BUSlink USB 2.0 PCI Card driver to work

I am using W98SE. The computer is running a 500 MHZ Intel chip. I am trying to get a BUSlink USB 2.0 PCI card installed.  I can see that W98SE is recognizing this device.  When I go through the usual series of questions, the driver never really gets installed. I have also downloaded the driver from the BUSlink website and clicked on the downloaded file, which appeared to be doing something, but can't tell what that might be.

What do I have to do to get this device installed?

This could be related to the video problem in the other question. Can you give me the motherboard mfg and model? Also again the BIOS, but this time with the revision number and date.

You may have a driver conflict. Go to your device manager and check the status of the drivers in question.

ALso, USB could have trouble with some older hardware, ie. motherboards.

Also, make sure you have your CMOS setup set to not conflict with the USB interface.  First know what your USB card needs, then go looking and make sure it's available for you to use.  Some older hardware may have had some resource reservations in your CMOS setup.

Actually, I gave up on installing this card.  The computer is old.  It has been upgraded a couple of times.  There was only one PCI slot available for installation, and the system just wasn't able to get the drive up.
Thanks for the help
