USB hit by lightening

about 2 years ago I was using dsl modem plugged into my usb port well i was fortunate that all i lost was my power supply. That is until last year I was having my wireless roadrunner installed and tech guy said i had to use an ethernet card and plug directly into modem because my usb ports were not working. I never used the usb ports other then for my modem so I hd no idea there was a problem with them. I figured it was a conflict with their product, then my husband bought me a digital camera and it will not work on my usb ports works fine on everyone elses. my hardware file shows usb as working with no conflicts but when ever you plug anything in its not recognized my camera does recognize the pc though. My stats are below if anyone has any ideas ( i am assuming somthing got fried thats why I have not messed with it but i really need to use my cam on my pc not the kids.)

win 98 se
pent III processor
550 mhz
127 mb ram

I was considering buying the pci but my camera says must be internal usb not add on not sure what they mean but do you think it would still work? I think thats the easiest as I have tried what you suggested.
fujifilm finepix s5000 i hope thats what it means lol.
Thanks rugrat I will give that a try i am pretty sure i have only seen up to drive e
great thanks kiwi I will try that
Ok I tried updating the drivers still same problem the camera says usb as soon as i plug it in but pc still not reading the cam . When i try to edit my config.sys it will not let me at all it says "This file was created by the System Configuration Utility as
rem a placeholder for your CONFIG.SYS. Your actual CONFIG.SYS
rem file has been saved under the name CONFIG.TSH."
Thanks rugrat but that did not work either, I'll make a trip to best buy or circut city later this week and try a pci card wish me luck and thanks e1 for your suggestions. :) :)
good idea jedi i will do that. thanks again
1 more quick question do i need to disable the usb ports that are already on my pc and if i do how do i do that. (before installing the new card)
Ok I have decided if the pci usb card does not read my camera it should read a card reader right? So if it does not work through the new card I will try that next anyone know of a good card reader for xd cards?
