About USB, I was looking at the Linux USB page recently, and it doesn't seem
to be quite nearly not a good idea as it used to be.  That is, it is
apparently working just fine!

I was checking out the 250MB zip drives and a couple of printers.  They used
to have problems, but apparently with the 2.2.17 kernel they've started

I haven't tried it myself, but it would seem there's no need to be in such a
rush to dis USB these days.
