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.

Just recently got a new camer (Olympus C-5060) which should work as a USB mass-storage device. I've tried to plug it in to my Madrake 10.1 computer. Kernel knows its there, but sees it at /dev/sg0. So my question is how do you mount an sg device? I can provide more info if necessary.
See, that's where I thought it should mount it. But no...see below

Ok it must be some sort of raw device. Lets see the output of ' cat /proc/scsi/scsi '
Theres a program called sg_map that might give some info you need. Not for sure where you can find it if not installed.
Here is a guess as to the mount point. Use no partition identity
mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt/camera
Of course you need a directory called /mnt/camera to mount to. You can mount it to anything you like as well.
Stupid as this is gonna sound...I just looked at my kernel config, and while I did have usb device enabled, for some reason I had disabled scsi disk support. so i'm gona try and recompile with that module and see if that's my problem, which it probably is. ya know, its funny how you read through all the posts and say "of course I've done that" so you make your own post. And then you think "...well maybe I should check" and you end up being the stupid one.
Thanks y'all. I'll post again to letcha know the results.
