Ican't imagine why your having a problem. I have since Red Hat 9 had
zero problems with USB ports or devices connected theron. I even have a
thing I got from Best Buy that stays connected and when I push in my
digital camera memory stick, it becomes just another hard drive to
Linux. I have Bluetooth and all the other stuff turned on and it works
fine in my Core 2.

I have another piece of this puzzle. From the GUI menu System:
Tools/Network Device Control, then click on "configure", the USB
devices are immediately detected.
I don't understand... but at least it works... now why won't my
printer work? Sorry... need a new thread.
