IOmega Micro Mini USB 256 MB FLash Drive in Linux Kernel 2.6!

I want to use my IOmega Micro Mini USB 256 MB flash drive in linux.
I am using Mandrakelinux 10.1 with Kernel 2.6.

The said flash drive is detected using lsusb, lspcidrake -v | grep usb, usbview.

However when I try to run fdisk -l /dev/sda a bunch of partitions are displayed
with question marks. In truth there is only ONE (1) partition as I am using it in
MS Windows.
[NOTE: I can provide the full output of the commands if needed.]

My question now is there a way to make the drive work?
If ever there is a need to write a device driver, can anybody provide a guide
for the prompt and effective way to do it?
