1. Card comes with drivers for 98SE. Should I use the manufacture's driver CD or the generic driver 3.3e?

2. The system is Pentium 133Mhz. Can a new USB 2.0 PCI card work in a old system like that? The manual of the card says system requirements is Pentium II (266Mhz).

3. The machine have PCI slot and I am not sure which version it is (i.e. 2.0, 2.1 or 2.2) The USB card says it works for 2.1 or higher.

4. The system board comes with 2 built-in USB 1.0 or 1.1. Does it need to be disabled for the 2.0 card or driver to work?

5. Should the driver for the built-in USB need to be removed for the 3.3e driver to be installed?

6. Does the card manufacture driver includes the flash drive driver as well?

Hi qqqqqq, welcome to the forums!

In answer to your questions:

1. Card comes with drivers for 98SE. Should I use the manufacture's driver CD or the generic driver 3.3e?
Arrow If you wish to enable reading USB Mass Storage devices, use nusb33e.

2. The system is Pentium 133Mhz. Can a new USB 2.0 PCI card work in a old system like that? The manual of the card says system requirements is Pentium II (266Mhz).
Arrow Shouldn't be an issue.

3. The machine have PCI slot and I am not sure which version it is (i.e. 2.0, 2.1 or 2.2) The USB card says it works for 2.1 or higher.
Arrow PCI 2.1 spec dates back to 1995, so I would think your system would have PCI 2.1, but without knowing the full specs it is difficult to know. Try it, if it doesn't work this could be the reason.

4. The system board comes with 2 built-in USB 1.0 or 1.1. Does it need to be disabled for the 2.0 card or driver to work?
Arrow No, you should be able to have both active and working.

5. Should the driver for the built-in USB need to be removed for the 3.3e driver to be installed?
Arrow Shouldn't be necessary.

6. Does the card manufacture driver includes the flash drive driver as well?
Arrow I doubt it, but you are probably best asking the vendor if you need to know. Install nusb33e.exe and you should be fine.

You can use 3.3 for either. This supports more devices, no need to use 2.4.
