USB problems on 2.4.2 kernel

i just compiled the new 2.4.20 kernel and for the most part, it works. the only problem i have is with the USB. i cant find the exact error in the logs but i think it went along the line of "couldn't mount USB filesystem". thsi is my first time compiling a kernel so i might have done something wrong. i'll check back.

You should probably report the exact error, in addition to what you're trying to do. IE, trying to connect USB scanner model XYZ.

I'm still running 2.4.19, but my guess is that perhaps you didn't include usbdevfs support in your kernel.
