Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Yep, most likely it should anyway... it should register as a usb mass storage device and be emulated to scsi, meaning that it will get assigned a device name along the lines of: /dev/sda, with the first partition being: /dev/sda1 and so on. To mount it:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/somewhere
That is, after you create a directory called somewhere.
don't boot it with the device plugged in. Boot normally, then plug it in. The device should show up when you do
in a terminal as root. This gives the listing of all available drives and partitions. The USB drive will appear as something starting with /dev/scsi
It should also appear in diskdrake - the mandrake partitioning tool in the mandrake control center. If you need to format it, do it from diskdrake. There should be a tab for the usb device.
Thanks to all, currently it is not worth any more resources to persue this endevor. I can access the device vai my network through a win box. I will try this at a later time when I resolve some other small issues with this system. Although nothing is critical striving for perfection is entertaining.
