I think the closest you're (easily) going to get is to buy a compact-
flash card & USB cf-card reader. Placing the cf-card into the reader
and plugging that into the USB port will cause it to appear & behave
like a "thumb drive" on a modern PC.
CF cards have a substantially-EIDE interface and you can cheaply get
an adaptor - I think it's just a pin convertor - that allows this to
be plugged into a standard EIDE cable. EIDE was, I'm sure, standard
on my first Pentium, so hopefully it will work with your 486, too??
