Make the file usbpen in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc.d



# First, since floppyd runs as nobody, make /tmp world accessible.

chmod 777 /tmp

# Second, probe for the usb
modprobe usb-storage
insmod usb-storage

# Third, make the usb world accessible.
mknod /dev/sda b 8 0
mknod /dev/sda1 b 8 1
chmod 666 /dev/sd*

# Finally, start floppyd.
floppyd -d /dev/sda1

Next add something like

RCFILE_01 = usbpen


this is best done for each ltspclient.
Specially if you also use floppyd.
usbpen and floppydisk is mutual exclusive.

Add also the followin line to all users .mtoolsrc

This makes some buggy usbpens work.

The only problem is that the ltspclient has to be restarted when you change to another usbpen.
