No offence naveen_dlink but have you seen anything about pen drives in this thread?
Why didn't you search the forum and google. There are lots of threads/ information about
linux and pen drives. Alternatively, if you can't find the answer to your problem, start your own thread.

btw, there are no such thing as 'linux 9'. Linux (the kernel of the os) is currently at 2.6.24. There are different flavours of linux which are called distros (distributions). Judging by the number '9' you may mean RedHat.

You don't have to be so polite and nice you know. And I mean that in the most sarcastic way possible.

thanks for your advice, I'll keep it in mind... And I mean it...

Coming back to the main topic - I'd vote for debian. Generally anything with apt-get will prevent you from losing your temper

Right you are, and into a thread of its own it goes, together
with relevant responses ... :D


Cheers,

Nice one, Tinkster

naveen_dlink, when you plug in your pen drive, can you open the terminal
and post the output of:

dmesg | tail


and (as root):

fdisk -l

or

/sbin/fdisk -l

What you need to do is to find 'terminal' or 'console' in the menu with the programs. This will open a command line interface.
Plug in your pen drive and type:

Quote:
dmesg | tail
and show us what it says.

then type:

Quote:
su
it will ask you about the root/administrator password.
Enter it. You'll become root. Then you need to type:

Quote:
fdisk -l
or

Quote:
/sbin/fdisk -l
What does it say?
