The extras do not prevent mounting the drive. Note that USB 2.0 is not supported in the kernel used by DSL. The only time I have seen "not a valid block device" was trying to mount a 2.0 or when plugging and unplugging or swaping with another usb drive. Sometimes that will cause the system to want to use /dev/sdb1
If you really want to hack a system file then: Edit /etc/init.d/knoppix-autoconfig Search for usbdrive. There should be three lines concerning the usbdrive. Add an "if fi" statement around those three lines...
if [ ! -d /mnt/usbdrive ] ; then
As, I have said this is corrected in the next release.
