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.

Check to see if the device is recognized as /dev/uba when you plug it in. I had this happen when I upgraded to the 2.6 kernal from the Slackware 10.1 cd. It would mount for me but would not let me copy to or from the drive though. I am sure it is just an option in the kernel but am not sure which one. Upgrading again to the kernel packages in the current tree under testing solved the problem for me. If you don't want to try upgradin the kernel as an option this ealy in trouble shooting and it does show up as /dev/uba then try to see if you have the sd_mod module as in this earlier thread.
