err... not USB 2.0...

... USB on a flash should be fine.
You should be able to get drivers on the drives web site.

Google the Manufacturer of the flash drive, Look under Support or downloads for the driver.

Good advice above.  The manufacturer of your flash drive should have the proper driver available at its website for download for a WIN 98 PC.

I had to do exactly that a couple of weeks ago for my new Lexar jumpdrive.  Works great.

Hope this helps.

It depends on the manufacturer.
One of them is this:

If it is the brand of yours, will solve.
Goodluck.
