Hi Guys,
Quick Question:  I am using a windows 98 se machine and I have a belkin roothub installed in a PCI slot.  When I go to start up windows, it shows the Add New Hardware Screen, and shows PCI Root Hub, but it hangs on this screen.  If I go to Ctrl+Alt+Del, it says the Add New Hardware has stopped responding.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

2. does your computer need irq sharing , meaning when you install
a device and it cannot share irqs it will hang.
3. have you tried using  add remove hardware to install the device
