Retrieving data from hard drive.

Hello,

I have a Pentium III running Win98SE. I have not used it for several years. It still boots up and I can see the data that I want to retrieve. It is legible and complete (old C++ code). It does not media that is compatible with my current computer which is a Mac Pro. I tried installing a USB card, and I have the driver, but the operating system does not recognize the driver. It's looking for a *.INF file whereas the driver on the manufacturer's CD has another extension.

what do I do here? My next thought is to reinstall the operating system since I have system disks in good shape. I don't want to take the chance of losing the data on the hard drive.

Can I just use some kind of adapter to connect directly to the hard drive and treat it as an external on my Mac?
