I might have a buggy HD-install. Should I reinstall?

I think that usb-modules are not loaded even after starting hotplug-light.
It comes out that usb-storage module is not loaded at system boot.
Modprobe usb-storage, followed by hotplug-light start works fine.

Also, I am confused about entries in /etc/runlevel.conf, the third
column has '-' in most of the entries. How is the runlevel (3rd col entry)
determined for a service? For services: autofs, cupsys, hotplug-light,
syslog-ng as in
  update-rc.d cupsys defaults 20
does not specify the runlevel of cupsys...

My guess for runlevels would be: autofs/3, cupsys/3, hotplug-light/3,
syslog-ng/2?? For stopping these services I would guess runlevel 6.

Is there a rule of thumb for this decision?
