Sorry, it turns out the issue was that I'd disabled my USB ports in the
BIOS.  Man I hate it when I miss something simple like that?

Ok, it shows up in lsusb now as follows:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0b95:7720 ASIX Electronics Corp. AX88772

It doesn't show up in ifconfig though.  I just see my built-in Gb NIC
(eth0) and the loopback.  What step am I missing now?
