I did all that. Hitting space is how I got to the haiku shell.

Interestingly after I reenabled USB, I played around to see what devices were 

/dev/bus/scsi is there with 0 1 2 3. In zero there is a raw driver.
/dev/disk/scsi 0 1 2 3 are there but 0 and I assume the others is a directory 
its content is pointing to itself.

executing ifconfig loads and detects the LAN card.
Executing  an ls in /dev/input show an empty content for a fraction of a 
second, and then it seem to detect my usb mouse and at keyboard.
After that an ls command display the keyboard device and mouse correctly.
So it seems that this drivers including the usb drivers are not detected yet 
when I enter the  Haiku shell until the ls command in the proper directory 
detects and loads the drivers.
  Any Ideas.
