Ok, then if I just recompile my kernel (which I need to do for something 
else anyway), and this time compile the USB stuff into the kernel 
instead of as modules - also taking care not to leave out any important 
ones, then hopefully that should do the trick?

I realize that's more of a workaround than a true solution to the 
problem, but if it works it's fine with me as I prefer to compile most 
needed things into the kernel anyway, forgoing modules except for less 
often used things, like my ZIP drive.

In this case I had used the .config file from my RH 8.0 kernel, and 
wanted to change as little as possible for a first run through. Now 
I'll go back through and start tuning things up.
