Posted by ranger_cole on Oct. 15 2007,12:54I need to find out the usb drive name. I typed the commands as shown in the wikipedia article on usb drives. This is a long list of info on my pc. My usb drive is not the standard drive as in the example. What do I need to look for in the list. I am using a lexar jumpdrive 128 Mb.

boot DSL without the usb-drive.
on one of the panes, clear the input text and type /mnt <enter>.
a list of drives appear.
plug in the usb-drive.
after about 20 secs (usually sooner) a new drive should appear.
that's the one.
right-click on it and choose 'mount'
