I'll do it presently. But I think I've figuered it out, based on your post. I chose a pure ide kernel when installing. Furthermore, at booting I see the OS can't run modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter. So, I'll either replace the kernel, or use scsi-emulation in lilo.

EDIT: I have no USB hardware device on my machine, except the USB hub which I only use for the pendrive.

Sorry, but you concluded wrong. scsi_hostadapter is for real scsi devices and scsi-emulation is for CD drives.

You need to get mount outputting this:
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
Find the line in your working fstab (from 12.0) and copy into your 9.1 fstab. The check if your usb modules are getting loaded (they are not in your lsmod output). You can run lsmod on the good machine to see which ones are needed. If 9.1 is still not loading them automatically, then you can find them in rc.moduels and uncomment them so they get loaded.
