RE: usb-storage not recognizing archos 20g fm recorder in linux

I have not done a full research on the problem, but a quick search shows the following RH bug report that looks like the problem in question:

I don't know if it was a kernel generic problem or a RH specific problem (I was under the impression that it was a generic problem, fixed in a more recent kernel, but the above tends to support the claim that it is RH-specific). I recently upgraded my RH8 to RH9, I'll have to check if it still exhibits the problem (my previous claim that it was still a problem in RH9 could be bogus).
