    Um, I'd like to put in a USB card in my 933 G4. Keep the clutter to a minimum. I've checked Belkin and Orangemicro and both don't seem to be supporting OS X. Orangemicro is all USB 2.0 anyway. What are my options?

    Nevermind. I read Orangemicro specs on their cards. You have to download drivers and what not. The card running under OS X will fully support 2.0 bandwidth surprisingly enough. So, wtf, I have to wait for peripherals to be USB 2.0 too? Grrrr.

    It wasn't clear what you wanted, USB 2.0 or 1.1? FYI, I just bought the cheapest USB card I could find, $12.95, plugged it in and it's working fine with OS X in an old beige G3. (Now I can print in OS X.)
