I have an HD install and can't seem to get a usb device recognized on the system.  On boot, I see in the text that scrolls by that /dev/sda1 filesystem is not recognized.  The device is a ScanDisk compact flash card reader and I can see the LED on the device is off, despite booting with the it plugged in.  

When I 'lsmod', the only references to usb are:
Should there be other entries here?

When I try to mount the device, I get the error 'not a valid block device.

I searched up and down google and can't come up with anything.  Any ideas?

Those modules work fine for my SD card reader. Did you add an entry to /etc/fstab for it?
I use "/dev/sda1  /mnt/usb  vfat user,rw  0 0"  then I make a usb dir in /mnt

You can check /proc/bus/usb but it will be empty if the system is'nt seeing the card, you might also try adding the usb to/etc/sysconfig  ( not sure if DSL has it, I'm not in it right now, I've got way too many distros ) but if DSL is running auto-config on boot it'll be gone on a reboot
