Seems like it has something to do with BZ# 174887 [1]

[1] https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=174887

Something like that -- I commented on the wrong bug, but this is what
I said: libusual actually detects my external hard drive, but claimed
that it could not find usb_storage.

On Fedora Core 6 it works (both in Anaconda and in the installed
system) -- to the point that if I don't unplug the external hard
drive, it actually appears *before* the internal one (sda vs sdb). The
joys of device numbering..
