Automatic RW Permissions to all users for /proc/bus/usb/BN/DN

Hi All,
I have searched and followed the instructions as much as I can for the following issue. But I could not get it to work. Any help in the issue is greatly appreciated.

I have a USB Device (Novint Falcon) which is connected to a Linux Workstation. Upon connection a entry is created automatically under /proc/bus/usb which is owned by root and with RW permissions only to root.

Some useful information:
uname -a: Linux myLinux 2.6.9-efsm #3 SMP Mon Dec 4 13:14:15 CST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I need to give RW permissions automatically to the all users. Can you please help.

Hi Ravi,

Check out udev rules, you should be able to modify the permissions the device is created with there
