fedora 3 disk usb not been recognize


Hello, I have a system IBM Server running the OS Fedora 3. Once rebooted it will recognize my USB Iomega external drive and ran the backup script without any problem; but right after the second day it doesn't show anymore, when you do #fdisk -l, I did check the /etc/fstab and the "/dev/sdc1 /media/usbdisk ext3 pamconsole,exec,noauto,m" it doesn't display no more. When I list the module loaded it show the UHCI_HCD and EHCI_HCD. I tried to reload the module and it doesn't respond [modprobe -r ehci_hcd ). We tried also to plug it at the front and back of the server with the same effect.
Could you please help me

1 does the disk still work anywhere else?

what does dmesg give you when you plug in the disk

and 2
why are you still using Fedora core 3 when the latest is fedora 9
the chances are that a newer vesion wont have the problems,

also AFAIK FC3 is no longer supported meany any security holes wont get fixed and i belive quite a big onw was found a month or 2 ago

so if its possable to upgrade i would suggest that

Thank you for your prompt response,
1-) I have nothing in particular in dmesg about the USB drive when we plug it or unpluged
2-) Unfortunately the Upgrade is not possible to change FC3 to FC9.
You are right, maybe the new version won't have this issue.
Is there anything else that I could do in order to solve this problem ?
How can I reload the module, just by doing a shutdown ? or I won't have any other choice but install a new version of Linux with a new kernell
