Doesn't much matter that you don't have USB; NT4 doesn't natively support it. If the drivers are specifically for NT4 (it will matter), either break the driver up into floppy-size (using something like Winzip) and then "reassemble" back on the hard drive of the NT4 machine. If too many floppies would be require for this, then burn them to CD using another machine (assuming your NT4 machine has a CD-drive).

The concept that NT 4.0 does not support USB is a fallacy. See here:

I've gotten it to work myself using the i4usb406.exe installer.

Notice I said it didn't support USB natively, which it doesn't. I don't deny there are plenty of 3rd-party sources out there, but since the OP doesn't apparently have USB ports anyway, it doesn't matter whether there are 3rd-party sources or not.

Yong,

No problem. And another thing I forgot to mention, if your NT machine has an internet connection (which I gather from what you've mentioned, it doesn't), you could e-mail the file to yourself; but then again, I'm sure you could have figured out how to download it from the web as well if that were the case. As a last resort, you could network the NT machine to another machine (with the drivers in a folder on the hard drive) via "Direct Connect":

or even through a phone line:
