That's the tutorial I used to write the rules :-)  And a clear one it is, too.

Thanks to you and Tony for answering.  The problem, though, was nothing like 
what I thought it was.  Apparently udev doesn't automatically trigger those 
rules.  It's necessary to run 'udevtrigger' to activate them.

Next question, then.  Should I put that command into my .bash_profile?
