Accessing usb devices

I'm wondering how to get into my usb thumbdrive and my digital camera in Slack. It automounts in SuSE as /dev/sda1 for the usb drive and I can't remember what it is with the camera.
Can anyone help me with setting this up?
BTW, I'm using KDE 3.2 with a 2.4.26 kernel (I'll be upgrading all that this weekend though).

If you are upgrading your kernel then make sure you have scsi generic support and usb mass storage compiled.

When you plug in the disk/device run "dmesg" and this should show the connection and a device and associated partition such as "sda1". You can then mount the device like:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

You may prefer to mount to /mnt/camera (just mkdir that directory) and add an fstab entry to make it easier to mount:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/camera auto noauto,user,owner 0 0
