Is there any way to use a USB hard drive during
the Gentoo install? I've downloaded all the distfiles to
a Storix USB drive and want to pull them from
there during the install but I can't seem to get it set up.
I've tried modprobing various modules (usb-storage) but that doesn't
seem to work.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Vince

after modprobing usb-storage what do you do then...can the drive be see using fdisk say as a scsi drive like /dev/sda.....try modprobing usb-storage and sd_mod adn see what happens....i sold the usb drive i had or i would try it out and see too...jsut another though what do you get during post and pci detection...when the kernel is probing devices as it boot does is assign a driver to the drive or see it at all?
