    Knoppix 4.0 won't see USB key!


    Running the live disc, booting with the key inserted (all ports nogo), and I can't figure out how to get the thing discovered or how to mount via console. Any ideas? Commands I should be using?

    Try to mount it like this

    mkdir -p /media/usbkey
    mount /dev/sda1 /media/usbkey
    ls /media/usbkey

    Everything should be accessible from /media/usbkey

    Well, did it work? I mean, it should have, but sometimes other newbies like to see success stories.

    It Worked!!!
    I prefaced each command with "sudo", and it reads the USB key GREAT! Thanks! Next up is putting my own settings for Knoppix on the USB so I can save things to it.
