FBBG. That's why we remove net.agent from our hotplug installation. Of course 
the script will be modified in order to call the "ifup" script from 
LFS-bootscripts, but someone has to figure out first how to do that in a 
secure way (so that there is absolute no possibility for any single packet to 
bypass the firewall).

Yes. This version of hotplug has serious problems with linux-2.6 and USB. For 
known working instructions, see the SVN LFS book. Of course, you may omit 

Also, with linux-2.6, you don't need usbutils at all if you have mounted sysfs 
on /sys.
