There you see - have faith.
What isn't working ...or dosen't appear to be working...is my usb 256mb drive, and also my usb external cd burner.

I was able to access the drives upon first install.. which was a few days ago. I have since installed various updates....and an endless ammount of trying to get new video and sound drivers...with little success and likely contributed to this problem.
This would seem likely - that is, the updates interfering. They shouldn't, however - have you updated the kernel by any chance?
You wireless stuff shows up OK.
The SiS thing must be your internal USB controller.
I take it the external drive is connected to the ATA bridge? (Things plugged in there probably wouldn't have their own entry.)
Is the CD-Writer just plugged in to an empty port?
What exactly is it that dosn't work about these things - what have you tried to do and how... like would you normally be able to see the cd drive with cdrecord -- scanbus but you cannot now? Can you not manually mount the SATA drive?
Other issues that I will ask about after this:
-Getting the boot loader to work (i currently use my bios boot selection menu (F11)) I have grub installed,but it won't load upon boot,and the win XP selection dosen't work.
-Setting KDE to my deafult system session (default is currently fail safe terminal)
-Getting my dual monitor setup to work (and perhaps upgrade vid drivers)
-Better sound divers? (only one sound can play at once)
Each one of these deserves a seperate thread.
Boot loader goes to fedora
you can set KDE as default, starting from the login screen then using the desktop manager.
video and sound go in hardware. first search for your hardware in the HCL and then in the linux hardware forum - then post. The whole thing depends on your cards. Fedora has a graphical thingy for dual head setup... it sounds like you have a very non standard setup.
Have you seen the Fedora FAQ
