    usb memory stick


    Help!

    Trying to get a usb memory stick working on RH9

    As root mkdir /mnt/intelli

    Add to fstab /dev/sda1 /mnt/intelli vfat user,noauto 0 0

    Logout and login and it seems to work. But as read only. Permissions on /dev/sda1 and /mnt/intelli are set to read only except for root. None of these can be changed as root. Says I don't have permission.

    Any ideas?

    you could add uid=youruid to it, so everything will be owned by you ?

    I'm nearly at a stage where I can prostrate meself before me pc running red hat 9 and worship it's mighty perfection...................

    .........aside from this problem with the memory stick.

    I know that this works in Mandrake 9.1 cos I had it working on an installation meself. Anyone got the same on mdk where you could perhaps post yer fstab?

    Ta.

    Have you verified that all modules are loaded?

    modprobe uhci
    modprobe usb-uhci
    modprobe usb-ohci
    modprobe sd_mod
    modprobe usb-storage

    do this:
    Code:
    su -
    note: the "-" is important because if you don't use that, the paths etc will not be updated
