Hello All, 

So if I understand this right, I cannot use my USB flash device with
domain 0 as of yet? (I have enabled it in the kernel configuration
following all the necessary steps of the Linux USB-FAQ, but did not
have success mounting usbfs on /proc/bus/usb, and so on...). The same
problem is with XenCD as well.

Is this true? - please let me know.
