Unfortunately, neither solution suggested in the article works: the terminal command produces an error, and Mint 9 doesn't let me enter the BIOS. This is a critical error, BTW, a huge bug.
ThinkPad T43, single booting with Linux Mint 9.
LATER: the modprobe command worked after a reboot, but after rebooting again Mint 9 still doesn't see the USB drives. Unplugging/replugging the hub doesn't work, either. ? Don't know if this is relevant, but after running the modprobe command and rebooting, floppy0 still appears in Nautilus.
