Installing a USB Peripheral

One of the newest members of the PC hardware family is the Universal Serial Bus (USB), a low- to medium-speed bus designed to replace the serial, parallel, keyboard, and mouse ports on your computer. Windows Me provides full USB support in all versions—a big change from Windows 95, which only provided USB support in a few OEM-only late versions. Integrated USB support makes it easier than ever to add external peripherals to your PC. Table 12.3 shows some of the devices served by USB.
