    Usually, plugging in a USB memory stick doesnt need any drivers. It should just show up as a "Removable Drive" along with your other drives.

    Yep you're right, Win98 seems to need drivers for USB storage devices.

    Check out these:

    http://www.usbman.com/win98seusbguide.htm (Some discussion on USB in Win98)

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/Unofficial-Windows-SE-Service-Pack.shtml (The Win98SE Service Pack is *supposed* to include USB drivers - but its 15.6MB ! I'd say try it as a last resort. Also note, this is only for Win98 SE. If you run plain Win98, there's a different Service Pack)
