hello steven,

this will probably sound silly, and if you think so too, i'll take your
silence as 'yes, silly bunny.'

1) have you rebooted since the changes to rc.conf?

2) does your rc.conf entry include the " " marks?
                  usbd_enable="NO"

3) does a 'usbd_enable' line appear 'more than once' in your rc.conf? 
several rc.conf entries are generated by the installation.  perhaps you've
got two.  you may have created your "NO" entry at the top of the
file and have a "YES" entry a few lines down.

anyhoo.  hope that this gives you something to double check.


cheers,
epi
