Have downloaded it from BeBits, am just applying the usb.patch at the
...which worked! :D  USBDeskbar now works too so I can 'see' the 128MB
memory stick I've got plugged in.

Out of interest, who wrote the USB.Patches devices - and is the source code
to these available?

Agreed, but while I'm learning (and I have a _lot_ to learn) I'm happy to
duplicate work in the knowledge that while what I do for the next few months
will (probably) be for my benefit only, I'll then be able to contribute
properly to existing projects.
