I actually just installed hotplug to test it out, but that is not the
problem, since whatever it does I can do manually.
I added the /var/log/messages output in the original message, and it
seems that scsi and usb-storage recognize it as a usb-storage device but
don't do the last bit of actually emulating the scsi disk.
I have a usb disk on key that does work without hotplug. I am hoping
that its just a module/parameter/configuration problem.
