Ummmmmmmm. I did 'modprobe usb-storage' but i get no output, i just goes back to a console prompt:
[[email protected] root]# modprobe usb-storage [[email protected] root]#
does this mean it didn't get loaded? or am I using the wrong syntax?
that means it loaded.. you can then do 'lsmod' to see what modules are loaded.
I would also do a 'dmesg' after you run that, and see what information was tossed in there after running it.
I think usb drives typically show up as scsi?
With my usb key chain (not sure if its the same), it shows up as sda..
modprobe usb-storage mkdir /mnt/usb mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
