You may want to visit a more Linux specific forum and ask about the "no room on ep ring" error.  It's not specific to Arduino, so I am sure that someone with more linux experience than myself can help find a solution for you.

A schematic and/or photo of your actual setup, not a generic breadboard Arduino schematic/photo, and the code that you are using, would make this much easier to troubleshoot.

I bet if you just gave the 11 year old the Uno and Massimo's book, along with a basic supply of components, he would be flying along in no time.   Don't project your insecurities on him.  He will likely just embrace what is taught in Massimo's book as the way that things are done, particularly since he does not know, as you proclaim to, that it's "all wrong."

I checked and the XPS L502X does have USB 3 ports.  So I am sure that is the cause of the problem.

Also, try this:

Press and hold the reset button on the Leonardo, then hit the upload button in the Arduino software. Only release the reset button after you see the message "Uploading..." appear in the software's status bar. When you do so, the bootloader will start, creating a new virtual (CDC) serial port on the computer. The software will see that port appear and perform the upload using it. Again, this is only necessary if the normal upload process (i.e. just pressing the uploading button) doesn't work. (Note that the auto-reset is initiated when the computer opens the Leonardo's serial port at 1200 baud and then closes it; this won't work if something interferes with the board's USB communication - e.g. disabling interrupts.)

Are you sure that you did not install the driver from the FTDI folder?  That is not the proper driver. 
You need to choose the driver in the Drivers folder.
Also, try rebooting your system.
I uninstalled the driver several times and pointed XP to the FTDI folder to load the driver. I have rebooted XP everytime I loaded the driver.
I get the same error when trying to load the Blink sketch. I don't see the TX / RX lights blink at all when trying to load.

DO NOT point to the FTDI folder.  Point to the DRIVERS folder.

OK.  You obviously have a problem with the xhci_hcd module on your system.  And since it's built in, you will probably need a new kernel and/or a patch to resolve it.

What version of Unix/Linux are you using?
What kind of computer are you running this on?

My question about USB 3 was not referring to the port #, but rather the version of USB that your computer has.  MANY kernels cannot properly support the USB 3 standard, and so they give
the "no room on ep ring" error.
174  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Can't upload to arduino on: August 02, 2012, 12:47:13 am
This may be silly sounding, but have you unplugged the Arduino, rebooted, and plugged the Arduino back in?

Try to reload the module as follows sudo modprobe -r xhci_hcd && sudo modprobe xhci_hcd

Then see what happens.

Are you using USB 3 by any chance?  This can be caused by the kernel not liking USB 3.

Yes, seeing something you created come to life for the first time erases all the frustration that you felt while building it.
178  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Windows 7 and Arduino UNO on: July 30, 2012, 09:35:05 pm
There is something wrong with your system and it's handling of the USB ports.

You can go into device manager, delete all the USB root hubs and reboot.  Windows will detect the root hubs and enumerate them.

After that, follow the steps exactly as indicated at http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Windows#toc4 and see what happens.

Have you checked to see if you have popups blocked in your browser?

Have you tested it without the ethernet shield attached?
