    USB 2.0 is fucking slow as hell, I can't imagine having to suffer thru 1.1

    It will work, but the throughput speed is going to suck. USB 1.1 has a maximum of 12Mbps, or 1.5MB/s. It would be highly advisable to upgrade with a USB 2.0 card; they are pretty cheap anyhow.

    You sure, a lot of hdd enclosures won't work at 1.1. 2.0 doesn't have to be backwards compatible.

    My iPod doesnt work with 1.1 but will with 2.0

    It should work, but then it's kind of a moot point really, it will be practically unusable on 1.1... think how long it would take to transfer one gigabyte at 1.5MB/sec.
