I am missing the Windows 98SE driver for a USB EHCI Controller ... the information in the PC's registry identified it as the following:
Upon consulting a PCI database, I found the following information about the device:
1) Intel Chip #: 82801DB/DBL/DBM
2) Chip Description: USB EHCI Controller
3) Notes: Device #29, Function #7
After a search of the Intel website, I was unable to find a driver for this device, and Windows Update didn't find any drivers that needed to be installed. Does anyone know where I might find this driver to download? Being unfamiliar with this device, I looked it up on Wikipedia and found that it has something to do with imparting USB 2.0 capabilities. The USB ports are all working on the PC right now, just I'm assuming in a 1.0 environment. I've since Disabled the "Unknown PCI Universal Serial Bus" in the Device Manager, which has succeeded in eliminating the Registry Error messages I was getting. I'm assuming that I can continue using the PC in it's current setup, and not have any issues, but it would be nice to have that missing driver properly installed. Any assistance or advice anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Assistance and advice requires that you share some basic information with us like the model number of the computer and a little insight as to why you choose to run Windows 98SE. WIndows 98 has spotty support for usb 1.1 let alone usb 2.0. There is a guerilla service pack for Windows 98SE that improves usb function and then I know you typically have to add an outside driver for usb 2.0 which typically is the driver for your motherboard chipset. It appears you have an Intel main chipset system. Windows 2000 and XP have native usb 2.0 support in the more recent service packs.
