FC5 x86_64 with sata disk and usb
I have a FC5 installation on a dual opteron workstation (HP xw9300). In this computer are 4 sata disks installed (sda, sdb, sdc, sdd). I have activated the haldamon for automounting the cd drive and any usb drive. Usually Fedora uses the sda device to communicate to a usb device; however, in my case any sda device is used by the sata disks. I tried to mount a usb flashdrive and it does not work. The gnome hardware browser does not recognize it and the corresponding /var/log/message is:
kernel: usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3
kernel: usb 1-5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

kernel: usb 1-5: USB disconnect, address 3
kernel: 6:0:0:0: scsi: Device offlined - not ready after error recovery
Does anybody know how to get the usb flash drive to work?
Thanks in advance,

1st thing make sure that you are connected as the root because the following steps need to work as the root user:
1: attach the usb device and don't mind the log messeges
2: it seems from you log messeges that the system has found the device as scsi6
3: after that you need to mount your device right to a created directory
ex : creat a directory under the /root and named USB
4: mount the device by using this command
" mount /dev/scsiX /USB " and X is number of the usbport that you connected your device in it and go to that directory and you find work otherwise reply a again

I will try it; however, I cannot find any scsi device in the /dev/ folder and normaly you need a device which you can mount to the mount point.
