4. Can I run a USB2 device on Windows 98?

No. Only Windows 98se (second edition), Windows 2000, Windows ME and Windows XP support USB2.

The problem isn't with windows, windows hasn't even started to load while the RAM count is going through.

It could be a dodgy card, a fault with the PCI slot or a conflict with another card, try swapping cards around.

I would also suggest checking with your motherboard manufacturer to see if there are any relevent BIOS upgrades.
