Is there a motherboard that support socket 370 processor (celeron) with
onboard USB 2.0 port or socket 370 was already obsolete when usb 2.0 was
onboard.
Thanx

If you don't mind paying megabucks you may find a specialist industrial
motherboard maker who has one (or can specially create one) but as you noted
in the second part of your post socket 370 came (and went) before USB 2.0
was established. For best cost to performance ratio you're better off
getting a separate (add-in) USB 2.0 PCI Controller card. If a shortage of
IRQs/resources is a problem, disable the onboard USB 1.1 ports via your
motherboards BIOS and just use those provided by the card..
