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.

update: after attaching my USB drive to a windows machine and re-attaching it to
the Linux server afterwards, I get other messages now from syslog:

And now I can see my drive under /proc/scsi/usb-storage-0/1 as well:
Host scsi1: usb-storage
Vendor: Western Digital
Product: External HDD
Serial Number: 5743414C3733343435313139
Protocol: Transparent SCSI
But I sill can't mount the drive.
Any ideas? Greetings, Matthias
