USB A Host Port

I have a Beagleboard rev C4. I have a DLINK 7-Port USB 2.0 powered
hub connected to the USB A (HOST) port on the beagleboard. I am
running the rowboat-eclair-dsp android build and I am unable to get
the C4 board to recognize anything on the hub, neither is anything
recognized directly plugged into the USB A port (not the mini-A OTG
port). Can anyone give me some clues on what is needed to get the USB
A port running?
