	Yes, I have had that and other mount points for usbfs in /etc/fstab but I 
always get mount error when I try to mount it at /proc/bus/usb because it 
says the mount point does not exist.  So, I created a new mount point at 
/fs/usb which does seem to work, but still doesn't help my USB mouse and 
keyboard work.

	I have just the boot scripts created while building LFS.  The only additional 
software I have built and installed are the usbutils and hotplug packages, 
which I had to build from the chroot environment.

	I've been trying to see how RedHat 9.0 gets the USB devices setup at boot 
time, but have had no luck there either so far.  I figure I must have to do 
something similar for LFS.

	It's kind of maddening, since I know I can boot my LFS to a login prompt, but 
just can't type anything.  So close, yet so far still.
