Yeah -- same scenario.  I did just have my tech assistant try 2 usb 
drives of the same brand, and they did both work.  Differnet brands 
though require a complete reboot of the thin client.  (Even going to the 
console of the thin client and killing off floppyd and restarting 
doesn't do the trick, not that that would be a feasible solution, but I 
tried it anyway)

That just gave me a thought -- is it possible to have usb drives AND 
local floppies working?  Does the floppyd daemon support multiple 
devices?  If no one knows, I can do some testing -- but I was just 
curious if anyone had tried it.
