Hmmm... it's been awhile since I looked at an RH system, but have you
checked the /etc/sysconfig/* stuff? I have a hunch you'll find the usb
stuff handled in there. I know they do a lot of stuff in that directory,
maybe usb too.

In your other thread, you mentioned you don't have a /proc/usb entry.
I'm not experienced with that stuff, but this sounds wrong. If the stuff
is compiled into the kernel and activated (I know some stuff has to have
a switch set, like "echo '1' >/proc/..."), then directories under /proc
should just be there.

Have you scoped out the documents under linux-2.4.22/Documentation?
maybe something with a clue is in there.
