Thank you.  I will do that.  

I have not been able to determine the difference between auto and manual for:
iface usb0 inet manual

I understand that 'auto' provides for bringing up the interface at boot, and manual must mean that does not happen.  Does that mean that I should 'ifup' to do it?  What are the concerns for the choices?
