linksys 32mb usb key - basic kernel issue
I have done a search of the web and cant find anyone with the same problem as me. I own a little 32mb linksys usb key and recently installed Red Hat 9.
I compiled my own kernel in an attempt to make the thing run a little faster, i got the speed but lost the usb memory key support.
The standard kernel that came with RH9 (along with Debian and Mandrake i think) supported the key fine, but certain other issues mean that I cant run these standard kernels.
I have obviously missed out an option in the kernel config, but cant figure out which one it is.
I recall that I needed some sort of SCSI support, but was unclear on that. I have enabled all the "usb mass storage" and things along the line of that, but it dosnt work.
Usually to mount the key i do:
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbdrive
however that returns an error along the lines of "not a device". (the same error you would get doing
mount -t vfat /dev/hde6 /mnt/usbdrive
when there is no hde6. - sorry about the vagueness)
Does anybody know what things I need to enable in the kernel to get this thing to work?
Thankyou so much
