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.

This should be simple but for me it's not..In past versions the thumbdrive would mount as soon as it was plugged in and you could umount it by right clicking your mouse and select umount..
This version mounts as soon as my USB Kingston drive is plugged in, but when you click "safely remove device" it says it's not listed in /etcfstab and you are not root..
My question is who does this in 10.0 hal? udev? or what else..
How do I safely remove the device without rebooting?
Note I could find nothing in the admin manual for suse 10.0 or on line..
Thank you for any tips or suggestions,
Edit: it would have been much more professional If I spelled "thumb" correctly
I have the same problem and have not really found any solution although I have read a few proposed workarounds. You just have to make sure the drive is not being used when you remove it. If it is removed while writing, you could corrupt your data. Otherwise, it is supposed to be safe to remove without being unmounted. In my case, I just shut down all applications so I am sure nothing is using it, wait a few seconds, and then pull it out.
I think I will be on the safe side with this issue..
I did a "fdisk -l" as root, and found my thumb drive is listed as "/dev/sda1"
So for the time being I will play it safe and issue a"umount /dev.sda1"again as root..
Just pulling it out scares me..(big chicken hehe)
OBTW a surprise was to find the file sys was fat16 on my drives
