As I told you last week-end I downloaded the new rhmkiso from the svn
repository and also the braillified installer for Fc3 from the brltty's
This morning I tested the two things with no luck unfortunatly :-(

First I grabbed the braillified installer and boot from the cd. At boot
prompt I typed :
text brltty=pm,usb:

Unfortunatly no braille appeared on my braille display, brltty was not
loaded at all since I didn't hear any brltty's beeps.

So I decided to make the Fc3 disk 1 with the rhmkiso script from svn
repository but no luck it seems it requires a e2fsck version newer than
the one which is installed on my Debian sarge system. I have the 1.35
version (february 2004).
So, my question :

Do you think it doesn't  work because my braille display is an usb
braille display ?

As sommeone ever successfully got braille support with this braillified
Fc3 installer ? and particularly if you have a Papenmeier BRAILLEX EL40S
? Of course Dave i think you successfully started with this iso and
braille support ?
The brltty's version included is the 3.6 ?

Thx in advance for suggestions,
