|After installing the system to a harddrive, some usb connected devices are inaccessible. Here is the solution to the problem:
Boot the system from the distribution CD.
Mount the hard disk (or flash)
# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
Create the /sys directory on the harddrve, from the running system (see sysf in wikipedia or in kernel or driver development documentation).
# mkdir /mnt/hda1/sys
Edit the /opt/bootlocal file on the harddrive and add the following line
The underscore instead of the hyphen, is important.
Reboot your system from the harddisk.
You can now mount your CD.
# mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom
