    usb drive mounting


    here's what we got
    Code:
    root@box:/home/weird# mount -t auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/stick/
    mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device
    I could mount it when I used knoppix as a live-dvd so why can it see the drive now?

    After booting to live-dvd to test the device it turns out that uba1 not sda1 it the one to use.
