I forgot to mention before, I haven't tried all the various OpenTracker versions. I'd try the version that is known to work first, and then try others if it doesn't (may depend on whatever hardware is being used, I don't know). I do know that it worked on four different machines of my own (two P3's and two Core2 quads).
Maybe off topic :p

been to lots of hamfests, seen lots of radio stuff, acquired many wonderous pc hardwares over the years.

Thanks, I'll write that down, it's easy to forget what drivers, etc. work on new installs. Yep, that's my Puerto Rico callsign. Are you a ham also?

I just did a CRC check and it looks like the version of opentracker you have there is the 5.1.5 version posted here.

USB scsi driver

Love this site, great job! Pulkomandy's archive link has the patch here: http://pulkomandy.tk/~beosarchive/unsorted/ftp.muleslow.net/beos/bebits/usb_scsi-1.1.0-alpha-1.zip
Also, the particular OpenTracker version that worked for me is here: http://pulkomandy.tk/~beosarchive/unsorted/www.emupt.com/beos/o/OpenTracker_x86.pkg
Not all opentrackers fix the USB file transfer I've noticed.

I don't think I actually have usb_scsi-1.1.0-alpha-11.zip yet.. :/

Sorry about the "1" upvote, I meant to give it a "10", but I can't change it.
Second patch required

At least for USB flash drives, a second patch is needed for it to work: "usb_scsi-1.1.0-alpha-11.zip"
This second patch has a config file which will almost surely need to be edited when installed on a BeOS R5 machine ( /boot/home/config/settings/kernel/drivers/usb_scsi ). Uncomment the line "ignore_sysinit2 true", otherwise, you end up in kernel-debugging-land on reboot. I've installed this on countless BeOS R5 machines, and ALWAYS need to edit that line. A further note, if your USB thumbdrive hangs on file transfers, install the OpenTracker version "OpenTracker_x86.pkg". This fixed the problem for me.
