Forcing EHCI driver to load for USB support

Ok, so we've been using a USB 2.0 hard drive for backup for some time using
Veritas Backup Exec. It's been working but has been very slow. Slower than
it should be even considering that it's using USB to access the drive. I
found this TID which seems to have some good insight into the problem.


" To change the USB driver, find out which driver is loaded by typing m
*.CAD at the console.

Then disconnect the USB device, replace the existing driver with the new
driver, and then plug the device back in. It should not be necessary to
reboot the server. "

I have the non-USB 2.0 driver loading OHCI and support tells me that my
server has 2.0 compliant ports. I can obviously disconnect the USB device
but how do you "replace the existing driver with the new driver"? From my
understanding CIOS.NLM automatically loads the USB drivers when the
server boots. Should I make a copy of EHCIDRV.NLM and replace the other
drivers with it while changing the name? What am I missing?

Thanks in advance for the help.

I'll go buy a USB 2.0 PCI card if that will help.
