Displaying USB devices in Slackware v11

So... I just recently installed slackware 11 with kernel I installed it with all the options, which I'm pretty sure included usb.

I'm trying to get both a webcam and a flash stick to work. I found out the usb wasn't set up when I installed a quickcam driver and it couldn't find the device afterword.

When I run lsusb I get all devices listed as 00000:00000 even with both devices plugged in at the same time. I have tried it after rmmod and insmod usb-ohci and dmesg says it found the usb buses and controllers and ports.

So my first question/problem is a simple one, how do I get the devices to appear in lsusb when they're plugged in?

What happens if you plug in one of your devices and then type
The last few lines of output should say that it found a new USB device. It will then tell you what it thinks the device is (it calls my flash drive a "USB Mass Storage device") or it will say something like "unknown device".

dmesg does not show anything new after unplugging/replugging either or both of the devices.
