Possibly not enough power to supply boot up and usb hub at the same time.

You can connect the computers together to transfer files using the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard click here, but if it's an occasional file you want to transfer, then using a USB flash memory stick is far easier, and if you want a more permanent communication then networking the two together, either wired or wireless would be better.
Regarding your boot problem, can you tell us what motherboard your Windows 98 computer uses?

It's a BIOS problem. I used to have it. on 98se You have turn off disable one of the USB ap’s forgot which one you will have to Trial and Error it till you get it to boot.

The four port Hub may be the Problem, Try it with only using the Comp one
