I have SuSE 9.0 (but to be honest thas irrelivent because i have tried a mirriad of other distro's from Linux Format coverdisks) and my USB is my doom!
Whenever i plug in any USB device my computer freezes up, and will not respond to any input (except the reset button and power button on the front of the case but thats by-the-by). if i boot the system with the USB device plugged in the boot sequence freezes at 'initializing Hotplugging Devices... USB' and will not progress! mad.gif

the removal of the USB device does not rectify the situation, the entire system needs to be recycled before it will allow anything to happen again.

what am i missing, what am i doing wrong, or do i just need to smash my motherboard into little tiny pieces and get a new one?

As much fun as smashing motherboards to pieces and upgrading is, I would suggest trying to install the modules for your chipset first and see if that helps. In an effort to try to keep linux distros from getting bloated and huge, designers don't include modules (drivers) for every piece of hardware known to man, instead, they leave it to you to install the modules for the hardware you have.

Either hit up google, or write back with your motherboard specs (model number is bests) and we will see if we can't get the right stuff going.
