    well for usb, you can use the PCI USB card i guess. and if its PII then it shud have the pci slot.. its price ranges are from 13$ to 17$.. there are some pci usb cards with Firewall.. they are a bit expensive, starting around 50$...

    USB PCI Cards costs 400bucks man or even less

    Just go to Lamington Road and you would get one!
    I just came back from Mumbai...
    Check out this place(Wholesale Dealer):
    Lakhmichand & Co (Lamington Road, Grant Road(E))
    Ph: 39519397/39509150

    From above seller, i got a USB stick! Its a mighty big showroom and all wholesale prices!
    Another suggestion, go for a USB1.1 PCI Card, as USB 2.0 cards may be little too much for ur hardware!

    I'm surprised u don't have a USB port
    I've found USB ports in my VERY old PI 166MMX pc..
    just take a cloth, wipe the dust off the back of the pc and check again! ;)

    about the headphones try out Intex headphones . they come with a microphone but do not have too good a sound quality. they are quite cheap that way . they come around rs 70. and a bigger version with better sound about 180. check em out .. other makes of sony and all are quite expensive abuot rs 700 - 800

    @rockin'away: Mate, i have personally tried those 1 port to split them to 4 USB ports...but those tend to create problems!
    Like my USB-Drive, needs to be plugged in the direct hardware port itself!
    The splitter arent manufactured each port dont get the required power supply and so specific devices dont function properly!
    My DKU-5 Datacable worked fine from both & also the printers & scanners!

    But power-specific devices like USB-Drives dont work!

    ya.. exactly zoom.. i have also used that.. its not very handy for flask disks... but its very good for printers.. actually i was having a business of ink refilling .. so i used it for connecting all printers at once.. inorder to test it....

    well i'm using a frontech head JIL-3465 headphones and it has perfect sound quality
    a built in mic and low price.i bought it last year and it cost me around Rs300 but by now the prices should have gone down a lot. the original price of this set was Rs 750 during its launch.
