PCI USB Controllers and Tiny Core?

Hi. I have a rather unusual question I think.

I am sick and tired of burning a CD each and every time I want to put some music onto the old bastard (Pentium I with TC 3.5). Does Tiny Core support PCI USB Controllers so I can start using USB sticks instead? What about mounting? Does the regular "mounting tool" support USB devices?

curaga:
Yes to all three.

Though setting up networking would be nicer than shuffling usb sticks, IMHO :)
PCI ethernet cards should also be cheaper than usb ones.

curaga:
Yes, I agree, but the closest network is far away :P

Thank you! I will buy one of those crazy cheap PCI USB controllers available on ebay. Do you recommend any particular chipset?

NEC

How about VIA chipsets? They seem to be a little bit cheaper still.
