Not that I'm aware of...I mean, at the end of the day, you're plugging into a 1.1 port...it's going to be limited no matter what you plug into it. (Square peg in a round hole sort of thing, ya know?).
Really, though, PCI USB cards are dirt cheap. And the ones I buy to upgrade older systems I buy with headers (as mentioned above) so that you can pull the previous ones from the M/B and plug them in (so that if you have USB ports in the front of your case, they will now be 2.0 as well).
