Syba USB 2.0 PCI Card compatible with Server 2003

I bought a Syba  USB 2.0 PCI Card.  I thought it had said it would work with Server 2003, but the box is only saying Windows XP.  Will that still work with Server 2003?  It's been my experience that most XP compliant objects are compliant with Serve 2003 as well.  Just thought maybe someone has bought the same card.

I haven't bought and tested the card you have. But, if it says on the box that its only compatable with XP then thats what its comptable with. Now, if you can plug the card into the 2003 system and it detects then your in business. You can try using the drivers that are for XP but this might cause the USB PCI card to become unstable. It wouldn't hurt to try, at worst the drivers won't work and your out of luck. That being said, if the drivers work at first and then the PCI card starts malfunctioning it might cause issues in the future. Might not be a good idea if your installing it on a high priority server.

Hope this helps
