I got and installed the usbutils and hotplug packages, but am still trying to
figure out if I need to do any additional configuration to make this all work
so my LFS will work with my USB keyboard and mouse like my RedHat 9.0 setup
Obviously I am still missing some critical piece of information and/or
software to bring this all together. I did look at the hotplug info on
Source Forge, but still have very little idea exactly what it all mean.
Another problem I am having is the usbfs file system is not getting mounted
under /proc/bus/usb - and I have no entry for usbfs at all in my RH 9.0 setup
so am unsure how this works with respect to LFS.
I have been searching for information on the web that might help me get all
this setup, but have not had any real success so far. I suspect there is a
problem with respect to getting the usbfs mounted, but am not sure. My LFS
boots to a login prompt just fine, so at least it is bootable and -seems-
like it would work if I had use of my USB keyboard.

Yes, of course I'll report whatever info I find - especially whenever I am
able to actually get the USB keyboard and mouse to work with LFS. I want to
give back to the community I have gained so much from over the years. :)
