Description of problem:
I have an MSI I845G Max.
If I plug anything into the USB or USB2 ports, the computer freezes on bootup at
Initializing USB driver ehci-hcd
Otherwise, if I use the USB ports open, they work fine if I plug in items after
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

You have to plug something into the USB ports on bootup, or it boots fine
I would be willing to do debugging or anything necessary if you want. I'm
desperate. I don't want to constantly unplug USB every time I boot.
This also appears to be a problem with the 2.4.9-e.25smp kernel. During bootup
I get the following: modprobe - Can't locate module ehci-hcd. The machine in

I found that if I enable "legacy USB support" that it causes this
issue. If I disable it, the issue goes away.
I still have an MSI I845G Max.
"legacy USB support" in BIOS CMOS setup, that is.
This seems to be fixed on FC2 test2 (kernel 2.6.5-1.319). Can anyone
