 USB Storage Devices Under Linux

Newsforge talks about making USB storage devices work seamlessly under Linux.

"In this case, "someone" was Konstantin Riabitsev of Duke University.. In a posting last summer to a Red Hat mailing list, Riabitsev shared a shell script that made my life easier. You put his script in the location he specifies, copy a few lines from your system's usb.distmap file and paste them into usb.usermap, changing one string, and you're done. When you insert a USB storage device into one of your system's USB ports, an icon called SDA appears on the desktop. "
