No, not a VM system. I have had problems with this machine's USB ports in the past, come right up on the LiveCD and Centos, but not on my install. I am sure its the settings, but can't figure out what are the correct settings. I tried using the config file in the centos boot directory, but that didn't even mount the root filesystem, so it has other problems.
