Predominately PS/2 mice and keyboards.

One of my computers had both a USB mouse and keyboard, and only
had 2 USB ports. In order to use a flash drive I
had to keep unplugging either the mouse or keyboard.... Apparently
these are more "Designed by idiots" products.

You do know they make USB hubs right?

Cue to question from yesteryear "What's hub and will it work on my win98?"

That will free up the 2nd USB port for you flash drives.
