I see from my motherboard manual that the board (FN45) has 2 extended
USB headers...JP11 and JP14. How do I bring these to the rear panel?
Surely I don't have to lose the only PCI slot.

thanks,

It's either that or mod the case.

Is there any HW available, in case I don't mind losing my PCI-slot? 8-)

There are back panes that have a couple of USB ports attached and
cables to connect to the mobo headers. They only cosr like twelve
bucks and they don't really use the PCI slot, just the backpane space.
I've taken these things and mounted them on the case itself by
cutting a small slot to allow access to the ports. More often than
not, to bring ports to the front of the case on older boxes. It's not
that hard. If you are not using your external 3.5" bay, there are USB
ports that can be mounted there but of course they would not be on the
back.

Are the mobo headers generic, or do I need a Shuttle-specific back pane?

You might take a look at FrontX

.....assuming you have a front panel available.
