Description of problem:
I'm trying to recover a dead FC4 install from an external USB2 drive.
Anaconda, while detecting the USB device, fails to load the usb-stroage module, and there is no manual way of doing it, (Even in expert and or dd mode)
More-ever, Anaconda sourly a tool that will enable user to manually select/start drivers during the rescue/install procedure.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect an external USB drive
2. Reboot using Fedora disk 1
3. Select "linux rescue" and/or "linux".
Actual Results: External USB drive is not detected. usb-storage module not loaded and cannot be manually loaded.
Expected Results: External USB drive should be detected during the "hardware-probe" stage.
