Yes, I ran down anything that looked like an executable and nuked it.  
Before I did that, the bootup hung for serveral minutes, and generated 
megabytes of logging about stuff it couldn't find, or even hung the 
boot completely.  That was at least 6 months back up the log, maybe 8 
or 9.

Now, I've reinstalled hotplug-2004_01_05-1.noarch.rpm and 
hotplug-base-2004_01_05-1.noarch.rpm, and the boot is stalling on 
"Starting hotplug" for about a minute now, much faster than before, 
and my logs are filled with messages about not finding ide_probe_mod 
and ide_probe.  Now, the interesting thing is that in my updated 
modprobe.conf, those module aliases are listed as ide-probe and 
ide-probe-mod, note switch from underscore to dash as separators????

Nothing similar can be grepped out of the kernels .config either.

Which is correct, and what do I edit to fix it?

I installed this and did the usbautocam add for a directory to put the 
pix in the camera in, but now it plays the "nopix.wav" about 30 
seconds after I turn the camera on.  The logs contain:

And I see a fatal, no sd_mod found in that.  That doesn't seem 
to fall out of any greps I've managed to concoct here either.

Of course, unless usbautocam made it, there is no /misc/usbautocam
directory.  No, /misc was empty, and I as root, cannot do a 
"mkdir /misc/usbautocam".  There is such a /misc dir, but its empty.
And mkdir returns a "no such file or directory" message.

Call me puzzled, a whole lot...
