So the USB subsystem is seeing it being plugged in.

Thanks for the advice - the pc does freeze when you start it up with the 
usb connected. I found something on a search saying 'try kernel 2.6'. 
Presumably using a newer version kernel with a distribution designed 
around an older one is a recipe for complications? Not that I would have 
a clue how to do that anyway!
