Hi Dave,

I don't think that the BRLTTY version is the problem here. As I said, there 
are no USB devices in the usb subdirectory of /dev. The question is: I 
chose USB support during kernel compilation, but is there something that I 
must add in the modules.conf file? When I insert my USB flash memory, the 
kernel responds. So there seems to be at least some sort of USB support
