sorry to reply to my own post and to dig up an old thread, but just in case anyone else out there may be having issues with the USB and this board:

I now have a mouse keyboard and USB headset all functioning fine with the system, granted the keyboard i needed to plug directly to an onboard USB port, as having all 3 plugged into the hub would cause weird behaviour such as pressing a key once and an infinite repeat of the letter would result.
Currently i am testing Jaunty (Kubuntu 9.04) on my laptop for any issues that could pop up from a Hardy upgrade and assessing if upgrading to jaunty would be feasible on this board.
