I am trying to use a USB2.0 2 Port Host Control Card (Dynalink) on an old
Toshiba T4500 in order to connect an external USB2.0-HDD (System: Zipslack
9.0/kernel 2.4.20). As I understand the socket is recognized, but USB
not initialized. The same card is working on a Satellite 1900-101 (I am
even booting from the USB-HDD, by loading necessary modules from an
initrd first, as that box has no USB bootoption.)
After searching on the web quite some time, I'm a little bit confused
about one thing: Is there maybe an absolute hardware incompatibility
between this card (guess it's 32-bit) and that old laptop which
seems to have ISA, but no PCI - The card seems to fit well in the slot -
and what I try is in vain; or is the problem somewhere else ???
Thanks in advance for any hint.

If this is an ISA system, then this card cannot work.
The card may fit because your socket is keyed to accept 3.3V cards (which this is). But your socket only supports 16-bit 3.3V cards, not 32-bit ones.
