If you get the "busy" message, then it means that you've got an open process accessing it. For example, if opened up a terminal session, then mounted the pendrive and nagivated over to /mnt/flashdrive, you will not be able to unmount it (because your session is accessing it). cd to a higher level directory and you should be OK, assuming that no other process is still acessing it -- J.W.
linux:/home/mark # mount
