I really hope someone can answer this, as I just finished doing the CVS 
version I downloaded and started yesterday, and I'm having the exact 
same error basically:

Mount: mount point /proc/bus/usb does not exist        [failed]

Then follows the standard "You should not be reading this...etc" 
message, with /etc/rc.d/rcsysinit.d/S40mountfs exiting with a return 
value of 32.

Aside from me getting value 32 versus his 96, this looks like the same 
error to me.

I thought it might be due to my forgetting to create a modules.conf file 
(which caused an error bringing up my nic). I created this file and 
copied the relevant lines for usb and nic from my hosts' modules.conf, 
and this fixed the nic error but not the usb.  The line I copied 
pertaining to usb is as follows:

alias usb-controller usb-uhci

I have no idea if that line has anything to do with the problem or if 
it's even needed, but either way it made no difference.

If you solve this problem or if anyone else can help, I would greatly 
appreciate it. Thanks in advance...
