    Howdy all,

    I'm very pleased to be able to tell you that Micro Solutions
    has just made available the "BACKPACK USB Loader".

    It is available here:

    This package provides the firmware and scripts to allow
    "BACKPACK USB" products (including USB2 products) to be used with the
    "linux-usb-storage" driver.

    This package ties into the usb-hotplug layer, so that the drive may simply
    be plugged in and it will be recognized as a linux-usb-storage device.

    This package depends on the linux-hotplug and fxload packages.
    If your distribution is missing these packages, you may wish to obtain them
    (look in the USB section)

    Thanks go to the usb-hotplug and linux-usb teams as well as the author of
    fxload. Oh and of course the obligatory thanks to all linux kernel
    developers for doing a great job.

    Hope this will help all Linux users of BACKPACK products,

    Ken Hahn
    Engineer, Micro Solutions
