Lexar JumpDrive and SCSI

sorry if this is a re-post, i think i remember seeing information about the jumpdrive here...

i recently bought a lexar jumpdrive, and read a little about how to mount it in linux.

apparently i just create a directory in /mnt for the device, and use the mount command like so...
mount /dev/sca0 /mnt/jump -t vfat

logical, right? made sense to me, but the only thing is, i don't have a /dev/sca0 block device or sca1, sca2, etc... i do have a directory in /dev called 'scsi'.

any clue how to get those devices set up so i can use this thing? my guess is that scsi isn't compiled into my kernel (i don't use any other scsi devices), if so, how can i work that in?

thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide!!!

I am using RedHat 9, and mine maps to /dev/sda1. A fairly easy way to find out what it gets mapped to is to use 'dmesg' and find the output talking about SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices.
