How to get Linux to "ignore" one USB bus but not another?


I'm using Slackware 9 kernel 2.4.20 - I need to prevent Linux associating the usb-uhci module with the motherboard USB bus but NOT my pci USB (2.0) expansion card.

It's quite tough to explain the whole situation but is there a way to "restrict" the usb-uhci kernel module to only one usb bus?

I need Linux to "ignore" the MB USB but use my pci usb expansion card instead.

Please help!

If you disable hotplugging (chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug) then you will be able to configure all that yourself, I'm not sure off the top of my head how it could be done, but it should be possible.
