Question Lexar jumpdrive and mandrake 10.0


So i've recently tried to play with my jumpdrive in linux. I followed the install instructions set forth by membrax in his very worthy post about how to set up a jumpdrive in linux:

However, it appears that mandrake 10.0 makes the necessary modifications to fstab in order to visualize the drive. I get a /mnt/removable icon on my kde desktop when the drive is inserted, but when i try to umount the drive i get a message saying that the device is busy..This happens over and over, and I don't understand why. If i pull the drive out, the terminal session ends with a kill 9. What have I done wrong here? I am assuming that following membrax's original instructions is superfluous since mandrake appears to handle the configuration itself. Can anyone give me any hints on how to trouble shoot this?

(please be gentle as I am just barely learning how to operate linux - and so far, it's been a rough road.)

thank you
