Missing line in default /etc/fstab


Not wanting to impose, but I've just been banging my head against the wall for 
a fair while and ... well this would have helped me a lot (newbie, 

I've spent a fair while getting a USB printer to work under woody and one of 
the problems appears to have been that the USB filesystem is not mounted by 
default. Adding the line:
	none            /proc/bus/usb   usbdevfs        defaults        0       0
Tot the default /etc/fstab would have sorted that out. I'm not sufficiently up 
on such things to be able to see the disadvantages with this, and indeed, I 
can't tell if I actually need it (I'm printing to a USB printer), but I 
thought it might make sense to do a heads-up for the installation team.

Thanks for your work, BTW. Debian has been a breath of fresh air after RedHat
