    I tried that and it didn't work, but hey, guess what...

    IT'S HANDLED!!!!!

    I put in install disk one and went through the whole re-install process and when it got to the part about hot-plugging, a light went off. Maybe hotpluggin just didn't get set on the last install for some reason although I know I chose it.

    Anyway, I noticed when I did lsmod after this, there were far more modules listed. I also found it strange that I was able to access my external Western Digital HD the first time I installed, but along with the mouse problem, I kept getting, "not a valid block device" when trying to mount it after the second install.

    My mouse was frozen after I ran through this install/upgrade, so I abolished the symlink from /dev/psaux to /dev/mouse

    and did
    ln -s /dev/input/mice /dev/mouse

    And all is working perfectly in USB!!!

    The problem was hotplugging was not operational. I want to thank you guys for helping me out with this! I wouldn't have come up with a solution without your input!
