Working on a Dell Dimension 4100 Pentium III to use as a retro machine running Windows 98 SE. I just now realized that although it has 2 USB ports in the back it is too old to recognize my USB controllers, keyboard and mouse. I do have a ps2 keyboard but not sure about the mouse and old serial type controller. Don't even know if I even have one anymore. Any ideas or possibilities that there is a work around for any or all? Thanks

Thanks so much for the reply. I do have the ps2 to USB adapter, but still does not recognize the USB keyboard. Is there any other option to get my old Logitech USB controller to work? Thanks again!!!

Thanks! I was not even aware of an active adapter so that really helps a lot. I do have a ps2 keyboard so just have to get the correct adapter or find a ps2 mouse. Thanks again.
