The motherboard is a decrepit old American Megatrends Titan 3 PCI EISA
Pentium motherboard from the mid-90s that doesn't have native USB support.

I'm using a Belkin F5U219 PCI card to give me USB 2.0 support.  I've got a
USB mouse and a USB storage device, but I haven't gotten around to setting
those up yet.
