	Yes, I have been looking at this also.  However, it seems that RH (as usual) 
does things a bit differently than everyone else.  This is another reason I 
want to go with an LFS - so I can have my Linux MY way and have stuff 
installed without the distribution packages being mucked with as RH and 
others do.

	There is no entry for mounting the usbfs in /etc/fstab for my RH setup, which 
does not mean I don't need it for LFS.

	Going there now - I had forgotten there is a lot of good docs there.
