	Perhaps, I was unclear.  The kernel in $lfs/usr/src/linux is 2.2.17.   
So, unless you can think of some other possible problem I think I can
confirm that is incompatable with linux-2.2.17.  I decided
to go with 2.2.17 as it, apparently, provides much better support for
newer powerpc hardware including usb. Is a necessary package?  If
so, is a new version available?  Thank you for all your help.
