I've got some questions about the Windows 98 USB Mass Storage Device Drivers.

1. Why does nusb23e have an "Explorer.exe" in its archive and nusb23d doesn't have it?

2. Why does the installation of the driver replace "Explorer.exe", "Systray.exe" and "User.exe"? Since Windows 98 SE has per se full USB support (unlike Windows 95 and 98 First Edition, who only supported it rudimentalrily) and only lacks a built in universal driver for USB mass storage devices, shouldn't it be possible to program a driver without using such hacks like replacing fundamental executable files with the ones from other Windows versions?

3. Wo is the creator of the driver?

4. Are there any alternative universal drivers for USB mass storage devices on the net or is this the only one?

I can't answer the first 2 questions, as I didn't write the drivers. They were written by Maximus Decim. As for alternative drivers, these are the most commonly used, however if you do a Google search, you may be able to find alternatives.
