You don't mount a keyboard or mouse, so that step is not needed in
those cases (or any case, if you mount manually)

I have not tried a keyboard or mouse with H-E-N, but I have used
several flash drives and external HDDs with no problems. Maybe tonight
when I am home I'll try to connect a keyboard.

Also try using an externally-powered USB hub.

I was going to direct you to the H-E-N support thread at
talk.maemo.org but I see you're already there. :)
