Change to:
dev/sda1 /mnt/zicestick vfat noauto,user,fat=12,umask=000 0 0

Check out man pages for mount and fstab for additional info.

Usually don't need the fat=12 option.

I'm having the lockups too. Won't boot with it in, and if I plug it in after it's booted, it locks up hard on both systems I've tried.

I am having the same issues as doofsmack and Marq. Any help would be much appreciated as I can't find a working solution on google.

I'm using mdk9.1 and have the same mini cruzer 256 MB pen drive. Thanks!

So yours doesn't lock up when you try to map the drive?

Well, my system will try to mount the cruzer, and it will try for a couple of minutes. Then the computer will flash the caps lock and scroll lock and I have to hard reset.

I've tried adding various lines to my fstab, but they haven't worked at all. I was thinking supermount is screwing it up.

I'm using MDK9.1 on an Athlon Thunderbird 1.4 Ghz, 512 MB RAM, MSI K7T266 Pro motherboard.

I have a gateway solo 9500 and it crashes with Mandrake 9.2. The computer will not boot all the way with the drive connected. When I connect it after boot and manually try to mount it, the computer hangs and stops accepting input from the built in keyboard. The conputer becomes responsive when the cruzer mini is removed.

--update: Okay, if I plug in the drive and run "fdisk /dev/sda" the computer will eventually hang and crash hard. If I try to stop the process, the computer is non-responsive. However, if I pull the drive,. the computer becomes responsive again and I can quit the process. Now, if I plug the drive back in and run "fdisk /dev/sda" the menu comes up almost immediately and the program works. I still cannot mount the drive withut the computer crashing.

I found my solution: I returned the sandisk cruzer to best buy and exchanged it for the PNY one. It was $10 more, but came with an extension cable (nice b/c my USB is in the back). It works perfectly, everytime.

It did seem somewhat slower then the sandisk one on my win 2k box. But, I'm happy. I suggest everybody else do the same.
