Since /etc/fstab contains a line starting in
might I want to
sudo mount /mnt/usbdrive
rather than /mnt/sda1 ?
But usb-storage seems to be causing problems and causing anything done
afterwards to crash.
This requires scsi_mod and sd_mod but doesn't modprobe take care of this?
Does DSL actually have any scsi (emulation) support?
