If you installed service pack 1, it will support both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0.  If you want to know if your machine supports USB 1.1 or USB 2.0, look in device manager under USB controllers and see if the word "Enhanced" or "USB 2.0" appears - if they do, you have a USB 2.0 controller.

If you put you USB 2.0 Flash disk or anything else into the computer, it will say "HighSpeed Device on an slow port". If everything will work just fine, without XP saying this, you have USB 2.0. Dont worry about whether your USB device supports USB 2.0, as it is almost everything today.

Hope this helps,

I accepted cwkhang's answer as his link led me to a lot of information, including using SiSoftware to determine which USB drivers I had.

I have SiSoftware Sandra Utilities and it indicated that the drivers for both of my USB controllers were 1.1.

Thank you all for your quick responses.
