Hi Nils,
Only a mouse/keyboard on the Belkin (7 port)hub.
Kubuntu 10.10 the version of Zorin is 4.
The system runs for a time then no mouse or keyboard.
If I disconnect the hub from the Computer then reconnect there is no 
indication to show the usb is functional.
I have tried Ubuntu 10.10 as well but the effect is the same.
I normally run PCLinuxOS 2010.12 on my systems but feel a need to try others.
Unfortunately others do not seem to work.
