>You need the usb mass storage module loaded. You also need SCSI support
for it, but can't remember which module. Then, when you plug in the
device, run tail on /var/log/messages (probably, or maybe kern.log as in
debian). That'll tell you whether it was picked up correctly or not.
Then just mount the device and copy your files onto it.
I have a Disgo USB Memory Stick and it works fine on both my laptop and
desktop (both running debian). It's picked up as /dev/sda1.
Chat ya later,
