Hello , I just installed ubuntu 6.06 on a 64 plattform.I have this problem : I tryied to erase some things from my usb stick and said that it was read only system.I then from konsole logged in as root and typed chmod 777 /mnt/usbdisk /media/usbdisk , I also did mount -o rw /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb and still and mount -o umask=000 /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb nothing happened.
1.is there a way to find easily on ubuntu - gnome the sd* characteristics of devices?
2.Is there a way to manage usb disks so as to read and write to them
3.Do I log in as root only from terminal?
4.how do i safely remove usb disk?
Thank you for reading this messsage
ps I think that ubuntu is more complex that suse but i'll give it atry to see the debian side of linux......... : )
