Thanks.  Yes the move from OSE to Sun went without any problems.  Everything 
that was working seems to still be working, and the USB problems seems fixed.

One minor problem encountered is that the Sun closed version is not an apt 
upgrade to the OSE version.  There were conflicts and dpkg refused to install 
until I manually removed all of the OSE packages.

Also, the OSE install seems to come in multiple packages.  The Sun install 
seems to be a single package.
