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.

Hmh ... based on information you've supplied I'd say something is wrong.
0. What do you have in mind saying does not recognize USB drives, no device nodes created in /dev? Is that what you mean? What is lsmod output?
1. Open a terminal , su to root and run tail -f /var/log/messages, then connect the drive. What the system tells you?
Thanks for the reply, Im really appreciate your help!
When I say NOT REGCONIZED I mean the usb flash drive seems to be like unplugged, I mean there is not sign of USB geting even power.
this is a brand new motherboard,I have tried usb devices using other OS, and all of them work fine, now I installed DSL linux and when I plug a USB flash drive, nothig happen, the USB KEy led does not turn on, and when I run LSUSB there is no device listed all of the entries shows 00000:00000
it is not a problem mounting the drive I think, it should be something before that
I apologyze I din not reply before,
My system is working now
what I needed to chage was some option on GRUB menu before booting
noapic nolapic pci=coacpi
It really fix the problem, I dont know how it really works, but when I changed those settings the lsusb command started shwoing my usb devices,
after that I just used MOUNT command and I use a script to obtain an ¨automounting¨ feature for my propuses it worked
I hope this info could be helpful for someone else
thanks for all uour help
