Problem with usb pendrive and usb modem ZTE ZXDSL 852


Hi to all :

This is my first question in here because I'm new to Linux and I still didn't grasp it well.
I'm using Slackware 11 on VMware 5.5 .

My problem with the pendrive is solved now. Thanks to Mechdave !!!
Really I dont know what is the mistake. But I have started to use Slackware 3 days ago..So please dont blame me for being naive.
I would to know how to install my usb modem (After I install Slack definetly - Without VMware ). Its model is ZTE ZXDSL 852 I searched for its linux drivers but I didn't find them but I know for sure that it is compatible.Any one has an idea how to install a usb modem ???
Any info is appreciated

Thanks,

You are on the right track, All you missed is that most likely you have not created a mount point under /mnt to mount sda1 on, also you are trying to mount a physical disk (/dev/sda), whereas to mount a partition you need to use the partition name (ie. /dev/sda1).
Make a directory (as root or superuser, su -l root)under /mnt for flash like this:
Code:
mkdir /mnt/flash
Your above mount line should look like this:
Code:
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/flash
Then it should all work for you...

Wink Well I know how to get it going for Ubuntu:

You can find out instructions on how by visiting http://ubuntu-linux-solutions.blogspot.com/ or http://linux-sri-lanka.blogspot.com

Instructions surely work for Ubuntu system as that is how I got my ZTE ZXDSL 852 running.

Check it out your self.
