usb sticks reliability

Hi Barry,

I've been using the FC9 beta of k12linux all school year, with no issues regarding usb sticks.
Kid's use them, & they just work, without them thinking about it.  It's one of the benefits of
the new system, no more MToolsFM.  The only thing that's odd is not having to umount.
The kids just pull them out and they're ok.

Not planning on running k12linux from a usb stick. I'm not quite that
brave. Just curious as to the 'out of the box' install of
k12linux/latest,in regards to the usb sticks showing up reliably,on the
users desktop when inserted into the tc. As I said this is a must work
thing for use at school. Still on k12ltsp el5 32 bit which is working so
sweet i kinda am hesitant on taking a chance on the latest greatest but
have to take the plunge ,i m guessing..
