Qemu can't locate /proc/bus/usb/devices [Zenwalk]

I am trying to run Windows 98 in qemu. I have installed Win98, and it works well (okay, a bit slow. But better, it seems, when I added kqemu module)
I need usb support, sa I have added -usb option when running qemu. However, this is what qemu says :

(qemu) Could not open /proc/bus/usb/devices
Warning: could not add USB device host:1d6b:0001
and really, when I cd to /proc/bus/usb, and do ls, the directory is empty :O
What should I do to fix or avoid this problem?

PS : some info that might matter :
I use Zenwalk, with kernel version
The software I need to run is PicFlash, which is used to control EasyPIC5 (a PIC mcu programmer). There are drivers for XP, but it is to slow under qemu. And no drivers for Linux

Thanks in advance.
