Let's try this again.

Earlier this fall I updated my server from CentOS 5.4 to CentOS 5.5.  Immediately my thin clients would not recognize USB memory sticks.  (The thin clients are DevonIT 6030, about 3 years old, and dirt reliable.)  Following several bits of advice, I got the units working again by:

1.  Install fuse and fuse-libs
2.  Cause all users to be joined to the fuse group in /etc/group
3.  Remove the modprobe for ehci_hcd in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc.sysinit and /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc.usb
4.  Reboot the thin client

Bingo, all started working again.  Happiness reigns supreme.
