Post subject:  Testing compiled modules - access USB flash from installer

I found myself needing to do a lot of testing whilst trying to build a working Atheros NIC driver. This was a particular useful sequence

1) Boot a stock 5.1 ISO CD, wait until it says no NIC detected
2) Switch to the console with ALT-F1, login root/no pass
3) vmkload_mod vfat
4) Insert a USB flash drive formated with FAT16
5) vmkfstools -V
6) cd /vmfs/volumes/m*
7) vmkload_mod ./YOURFILE
