Before holding your breath, the USB controller may be too old (USB 1.1 or even 1.0?) to communicate with the flash disk. I've seen a few P1 motherboards myself which have an USB header, but never considered trying to plug something into it.

If you know the manufacturer and model number of the motherboard, chances are that you can find some kind of documentation, either directly or indirectly by following a few different steps of rebranded manufacturers.

Nice page, but the connectors described there are the external ones, not the header on the motherboard.

It should look something like this on a modern motherboard:

Maybe the old Pentium-1 one only has one row of pins, but I don't know if this is a standard that always has been the same, thus a big warning and disclaimer.
