WRT to rootwait it is meant for jsut such things... USB is delayed at
being dected. I hit this same issue.

ruskie has made bootable usb keys using syslinux as a drop-in
replacement for isolinux (which is what the ISO boots with) and as far
as I know he didn't have to do anything else (including not having to
mess with the initrd). You might want to try this next time (if there is
a next time) to see if it makes things easier for you.

Correction extlinux from syslinux.

- the kernel didn't have the module ehci-hcd.ko

Just to clarify, the "kernel" doesn't have any modules at all. What you
really mean here is that the initrd didn't have the module in question.

I also made a custom kernel since I needed certain things at the time
due to certain eeepc modules being out-of-kernel at the time(i.e. LAN).
