hotplug is so that your system can communicate with USB devices. If you 
already have a usb device that is working you don't need to install it.

You should try using hte usb-audio driver and report what you get with
	cat /proc/asound/devices
or	cat /proc/asound/cards

If it is standards complient it should work out of the box. If it needs 
firmware then Clemens Ladisch is your best bet. But he may be busy.

Being on stage with the band in front of crowds shouting, "Get off! No!
We want normal music!", I think that was more like acting than anything
I've ever done.
