Well, actually, the problem was likely that the drivers *were* modules, 
and at that early stage in the boot modules couldn't be loaded. On the 
development version of the livecd, (currently 
lfslivecd-x86-6.1-1-pre2.iso) the USB storage driver is built directly 
into the kernel, so this should allow the kernel to detect your usb 
drive at that early stage. Hope this helps...
