...had an epson that required a special driver for USB once...made a virtual printer port, not unlike a tcpip port on a network printer.
And what has changed since the USB once worked? Has it been disabled in BIOS (bios update, perhaps)

Let's try this:
Start > Settings > Control Panel > double-click System
Click the + sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers
Click USB Host Controller, and then click the Properties button.
On the Resources tab, uncheck the Use Automatic Settings check box.
In the dropdown box, there may be several basic configurations, that look like basic configuration 0000, basic configuration 0001, basic configuration 0002...etc...Find one from the list that does not cause device(s) to appear in the Conflicting Device List, and then click OK
If you get a warning message .. ignore it and click yes
Restart your computer

Here's what I think is happening....First, windows 98 does not do a good job of handling resources. When you add the USB multifunction device,windows is attempting to accomodate the new device, by shifting IRQs, memory resources, etc...a multifunction device like your printer (scanner, print, fax, copy) requires an awful lot from your computer.
So, what else do you have in your computer?
Here is what I would do, and my rationale for it. Remove everything that plugs into your computer that you can....soundcard, modem, game controller....what else might be in there? Also uninstall the printer.
Do this by removing non-essential devices in DEVICE MANAGER, then turn off the machine, then remove devices, then reboot the machine.
Install printer drivers first, attach printer when directed. Then if the printer comes up, shut down, then add devices as normal.
Additionally, this is a good time to get any updates, especially chipset, sound and modem drivers.
This may work.
Incidently, what is the motherboard? And this is an integrated USB or USB add-in card?

Here's the thing on the AMR modem...I would really hesitate at removing that. AMR modems can be a bear to get back up and running. Try just the soundcard first.
Still pondering this problem...
Is this a home built system or is there a brand model for this computer. Jabil makes circuit boards, but they don't make complete motherboards...or at least I didn't think they did.
Did you get a driver disk with this thing?

Regarding sysreg....uhm, I know what you're talking about, but that is Windows ME and Windows XP feature, not 98.
The recovery disk will--probably, reset your windows to its original state -- ie, all your data will be wiped, so use with care. Now that I know it is a Gateway, did they provide you with a little vinyl CD case...should be a driver disk in there in addition to recovery disk...but, most importantly, give me the model number....might be able to find a manual

As far as what disks I received, the recovery disk is the only one I recall except for the Office software disks.
