Please neglect my previous post - I finally managed to see the part from DSL where the same thing is done ...

# Check for USB, use modules on bootfloppy first
if test -z "$NOUSB"; then
echo -n "${CRE}${BLUE}Checking for for USB...${NORMAL}"
if test -f /modules/scsi/usbcore.o; then
$INSMOD /modules/scsi/usbcore.o >/dev/null 2>&1
for i in usb-uhci.o usb-ohci.o ehci-hcd.o ; do
test -f /modules/scsi/$i && $INSMOD /modules/scsi/$i >/dev/null 2>&1 && FOUNDUSB="yes"
if test -n "$FOUNDUSB"; then
test -f /modules/scsi/usb-storage.o && $INSMOD /modules/scsi/usb-storage.o >/dev/null 2>&1
# For an unknown reason, unloading usbcore hangs smetimes
# rmmod usbcore >/dev/null 2>&1
echo -n "${CRE}"
# End of USB check

That means that DSL and featherlinux will try pretty much the same thing yet only in featherlinux it will be able to go ahead and see my USB device - the ONLY difference that I can see is that in featherlinux the USB part seems to come earlier, even before SCSI and then those 4 seconds of extra delay ... could that be it ? ???
