Hmm. Looking at my .config, hotplug seems to be enabled, also you'll
notice it's run at boot.
Just tested on the latest version of the cd here. I plugged in my usb
flash drive, and it was seen right away, module loaded, and device nodes
written.  /dev/sda & /dev/sda1 were not present before.  After plugging
in the usb drive, /dev/sda & /dev/sda1 are present.

Will build rtc into the kernel. Are there other tests we could try to
just confirm all is well?

Thanks again for your help.
