If it cannot find the modules then you need to tweak your modutils.conf
This is my setup:
cat /etc/modutils/usb
alias char-major-188 off
alias char-major-13 hid
below hid mousedev
below printer usb-uhci
post-install usb-uhci /bin/mount -t usbdevfs none /proc/bus/usb
post-remove usb-uhci if [ -f /proc/bus/usb/devices ]; then /bin/umount
/proc/bus/usb; fi

Don't forget to run update-modules after adding stuff to /etc/modutils/.

I never used hotplug. Is it any useful ?
