The OP didn't provide details about his system--he may have a real SCSI
drive, which would almost certainly be /dev/sda. Any USB Mass Storage
device will show up to the kernel as a SCSI disk, and it will be one
letter higher than the last Real SCSI or IDE-SCSI disk connected.
Almost every USB Mass Storage device appears as though it has one
partition with a FAT32 filesystem on it. Also remember that the mount
command must be done as root, at least until you put a line like so into
your /etc/fstab :
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/archos vfat noauto,user,umask=000 0 0
(This makes my USB Archos MP3 player accessible and mountable
read/writable by all users when the thing's plugged in. I have a ZIP
disk under IDE-SCSI that's sitting on /dev/sda.)
One other thing: If your motherboard has an UHCI chipset, make sure you
have the "usb-uhci" module loaded instead of the "uhci" module. SuSE's
default is to use usb-uhci for these boards, but just check.
