Angry Can't see or mount USB drive after dist-update!


I think I've done serious damage to my system! After initially installing Kanotix, everything worked pretty well, and my external usb drive was recognized whenever I turned it on or off. It was mounted in /media/sda5 whenever I clicked mount on the desktop icon. I did an apt-get -f dist-update and a huge amount of updates occurred (over 400). Now I can no longer access my external usb drive. It doesn't appear on the desktop or in /media. I have no idea what happened. I checked /etc/fstab and saw a new entry for a usbfs mounted on /proc, but don't know where to go from here. Two questions. Did I do the wrong thing in doing a dist-update? Most importantly, how do I mount and access my usb drive? Why doesn't this happen automatically?

Thanks,
Ron
