I Think You Meant:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbHD -o rw
...since what you wrote is a syntax error. Anyway, the OP's problem is
probably not in the mount syntax, but elsewhere. Mandrake 9 has a newer
kernel than Redhat 8, so the OP should go grab the latest kernel update
for Redhat 8 from redhat's website, or get the 2.4.22 tarball from
ftp.kernel.org and build his own.
If that doesn't help, the OP should do "dmesg | grep -i usb" on both
systems, grep the results by eyeball, look for the important
differences, and post the results here.
