hotplug usb problem

Hello! I recently upgraded my kernel from 2.4.6 to 2.6.13, using the pre-compiled kernel from the slackware 10.2 cd's.
 Everything went fine, except that my hotplug is still not working. I have read every post for weeks now, and I am still not any smarter. I can't figure out why it doesn't work.
 I can see udevd running in the kde system guard, but when turning on a usb harddrive no "usb-storage" comes up in there.
 
 The "/var/log/hotplug" directory is not present
 /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug is also not present as well as
 /sbin/hotplug
 
 I am running:
 hotplug-2004_09_23-noarch-5
 udev-064-i486-2
 
 thank you!

None of your usb modules is loaded.
Is it possible at all to start them with the modprobe command ?

Did you already go through this one:

Hi,

I belive you have to upgrade your hotplugs too, they are on the slackware CD with the kernel.

Yes, I have gone through many of those pages %)
"modprobe alone or "modprobe usb" doesn't return anything, what are the modules I am looking for?

$ ls -l /var/lock/subsys/hotplug
/usr/bin/ls: /var/lock/subsys/hotplug: No such file or directory

On the CD's I can't find anything "hotplug"..

# sbin/modprobe usbcore

# sbin/modprobe usb
bash: sbin/modprobe: No such file or directory


there is nothing "*usb" in /sbin!
