you'll have to add the module to some config file...I'm not sure how mepis does this, but if you can't figure anything else out, a quick help would be to add the modprobe line to your /etc/rc.local file.
if you use udev, become root and change the usb-stick's device file's permissions so that other can read it too. after a reboot the permissions ought to be saved I think....with fstab you need to set the device in your /etc/fstab so others can mount it too (I use udev nowadays).
EDIT: seems to me that you have quite a bunch of modules...do you really need all those? if I were you, I'd recompile my kernel and leave the sutff I don't need out of there..might speed something up in a good case
i did su to change permissions of /mnt/usbpen but it doesnot allow. do i have to login as root?
also how to remove modules. just edit mofules file or use any other command. What are most necessary modules to work for printer, dialupmodem, scanner, soundcard and ethernet.
