There are no usb* devices listed in /dev.

in dmesg I get the following with regard to ohci0 and ehci0:

When I plug the drive into any of the USB ports on the system, nothing happens in dmesg or /var/log/messages. camcontrol devlist lists no devices.

I'm a bit confused as to why my USB keyboard and mouse function, but my thumb drive will not.

It's likely that your BIOS has "legacy" support enabled in which case, as far as FreeBSD is concerned, you actually have a regular keyboard and mouse. That would explain why the mouse and keyboard work while other USB items do not. From the messages you gave, it's clear that FreeBSB is unable to connect to the USB controller. Disabling legacy support in the BIOS may help. Otherwise check your BIOS for other USB related settings and try changing those.

Indeed, legacy support is enabled (actually "auto" was the setting in the BIOS). When I disable it, the keyboard and mouse cease functioning, as well. That was the only setting I could find in the BIOS related to USB.

I suppose that means the on-board USB controller is one not supported by existing drivers? Or at least ones not listed in the GENERIC config on which I based my kernel (all I added was the ath drivers for my wireless)? I don't know which chipset it is, but my guess is, since the on-board video and LAN is an nVidia chipset, that the USB controller probably is, as well.
