They are all working properly says the system, but. I have tried to use them(2 ports) when installing broadband and a Kodak Digital Camera Docking Station and they just don't connect. Could it have something to do with Plug and Play setup? Thanks

you are saying you have no yellow bangs on anything in device manager?
if yes, no bangs, can you try a usb mouse or keyboard to re-confirm usb not working? if one of those devices work, maybe you've just run into double driver/installation problem.
if no: double-check for yellow bangs or exclamations or red x's in device manager.
check for latest BIOS updates for motherboard and latest motherboard drivers.
then get thee to latest win2k service pack
there is probably a How To Troubleshoot usb' document at
if suspect installation problem: one idea: watch screen carefully during driver install. note inf file win2k wants to install. go find that file and move it to scratch desktop folder: 'badinf' or something, try install again, keep watching screen, writing down filenames... you may have to move a couple of inf files. read the screen carefully. reason to do this is seems to me win2k sometimes wants to install existing (incorrect) inf instead of new one(s) you faithfully brought it. too dumb. you have to remove old one so win2k can't find it...this kinda stuff might be documented on websites of manufactuers...

Read the instructions. The USB devices are not connected until after the driver has been loaded.

Uninstall the software that came with the devices and start over. Don't connect anything until after software and driver install.
