At our school, departments make a habit of purchasing hardware without
our knowledge - About a year ago, someone bought an HP PSC1350 printer,
with built in card reader. They liked it, and others followed suit.

Unfortunately, Zen Imaging picks up this card reader as a HDD (at least
that's what I think is happening), so any workstation with one of these
printers plugged in fails to image.

I've tried various Boot CD's, and have tried newer kernels via PXE boot
- all do the same thing.

Can anyone think of a workaround for this? I've thought about
disabling USB on the imaging kernel, but have no idea how to do this,
or if it would break other things.

Thanks in advance
