Description Raghavendra Biligiri 2006-08-25 07:16:03 EDT
Description of problem:
During Installation the host tries to enumerate the keyboard/mouse dongle for 
the Raritan KVM.At this time timeouts have been observed. So if the system has 
USB Floppy/CDROM and if the Raritan USB KVM Dongle is being enumerated first 
then due to these timeouts the usb-storage driver will not be loaded.So the USB 
storage devices will be inaccessible.
Adding the Raritan KVM USB dongle to the blacklist fixes this issue
