You may have some difficulty as the early versions of W95 didn't handle USB support

""Windows 95 OSR 2.1 and OSR 2.5 provide basic USB support that was developed as the technology was first emerging. Based on today's more mature USB technology, there are a number of limitations with USB support in Windows 95 OSR 2.1 and Windows 95 OSR 2.5.

These limitations were addressed in Microsoft Windows 98 and carried forward to Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition. Addressing these limitations required several architectural changes that are not portable back to Windows 95 OSR 2.1 or Windows 95 OSR 2.5.

Microsoft recommends that customers who require a more robust USB environment upgrade to Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition."

info from click here if your version is suitable any of the cards for W98 would (in theory) work but the drivers may not be totally compliant

That is the product I would have recommended but (as far as I know) its W98 and there is still the driver issue for W95

Win98SE would seem a better starting point but I only tried to answer a very direct question with a very minimal answer - given that you said it all in your previous posting..

Sorry Bill I've just reread my post and I did not mean it to sound so critical ... I agree with what you say and believe that Moderator is out of luck with regards to W95 and USB
