    Finding and Configuring new hardware

    Im a linux newbie who is facing a great number of problems in finding attached devices and configuring them especially the storage devices......i have a Creative Nomad MuVo that works as a USB drive and a digital camera. Plug n Play in Windows is was a peice of cake but i am absolutely stoned on how to find where these devices are located in /dev and adding them in /etc/fstab. Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

    usb ports are located in /dev/usb ... normally numbering like /dev/usb/lp0, /dev/usb/lp1, etc. Also, check to make sure your usb devices are recognized properly (use cat /proc/bus/usb/devices). You may be able to get more info from the usb module in the kernel. It makes messages at boot (type dmesg | grep usb).
