    any one know of a USB PCI card that will work with my old beige 233 G3? Maccaly has one that looks like it might work but all it says it that it will "work with any PCI 2.1 compliant Mac" How do I know if my Mac is 2.1 compliant???

    Any OpenHCI (OHCI) compliant USB card will work.

    I got a generic one that I bought from a PC store, shoved it into my Power Macintosh 7600/132, installed the USB drivers from Apple's Web site (Or you could just re-install Mac OS 8.6+, and it will install the drivers). The card works Flawlessly.

    The PCI ports in the PM 7600/132 are PCI v2.0 compliant, my USB card is PCI v2.2 compliant, but works well (And why wouldn't it?)
