So, how did it go? Are you about to put what you've gleaned into a web
page? What I would like to know should be simple. What can be hotplugged
into a running X-window session and what can't? I can plug in my mp3
player, as long as it's off, then turn it on and Fedora sees it as a
storage device. Nice! I plug my cellphone in, X locks up hard. So,
what's the Real Deal on just plugging something in, as a general rule??
I'm hoping there is a general rule! <grins> Ric
