Just a note, as I put the USB Keydrives into widespread use here -- you 
can not use more than 1 keydrive type in a thin client during the same 
"boot" of the thin client.  This took me a bit to figure out, but it 
does make sense.

The first unit inserted is created as /dev/sda1, the second as /dev/sdb1 
(I'm guessing), etc -- so only the first one works.

Is there anyway to work around this?  Anyone have any ideas?  This will 
be a real issue in our lab environment...

Anyway, just thought I'd mention it, and look for insight.
