Short version first, after a reflash of Cacko 1.23 my USB connectivity is missing in action.

Longer version: I've had my Zaurus c3100 for a couple months and after being sightly annoyed at the remnants of the Japanese stuff I couldn't read I decided to move to an english OS and flashed to Cacko 1.23. I was VERY happy with it.

Via the USB cable I had communication between the laptop and the Z. (SSH, VNC and Samba to the Z and Ping both ways). My only problem was that I couldn't figure out how to get Internet access through my XP laptop for the Z. Whatever I did to try various configurations between the two devices I got to the point where I had no IP communication between the Z and the Laptop BUT I still could use the Z as a USB Mass Storage device. So I decided that since it was a brand new install I would just wipe it back to zero.

I reflashed with Cacko 1.23 and now I have ZERO usb connectivity with the Laptop (or another desktop) either with USB tcp/ip or as a USB Mass Storage device. Nothing happens on either end. The Laptop (or the other desktop) doesn't even acknowledge there's a device there. When the Z boots I can almost catch something that says (I think) something about cardmgr and usb but there is nothing in dmesg about USB. There ARE some repeated jffs2_scan_eraseblock():Magic bitmask XXX not found at XXX: XXX instead lines... and something about cramfs wrong magic but nothing else that looks like an error or warning.

Searching on this forum I tried the following:
lsusb gives an error that /proc/bus/usb does not exist.
lsmod shows nothing loaded.
modprobe usb returns 'Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.4.20/modules.dep (No such file or directory)'
The USB cable was tested with another device.

Of course my Compact Flash adaptor is broken, and I hadn't ordered a network card yet so I'm stuck right now with the tools on the Z itself. Any ideas?
