scaning usb ports in terminal


I am running manrake 10.1 on my laptop (patriot) an i want to use my usb pen... I have no problems accessing this pen when its dected by using mandrake control centre and login in as root and mounting it etc ... my problem comes after the system is rebooting that i have to do this process all the time i have even added the usb drive to the "fstab" file

/dev/sda1 /mnt/usb vfat auto,rw,users, 0 0


My question is how can i scan the usb ports in terminal to detect the devices added. because in windows when i plug in the pen it mounts it self and is ready for use without me doing anything else.. so if theres a command i can use in termeinal to detect added devices let me know pls thx

sorry, I misread your post.

redhat has kudzu
suse has hwinfo
debian has detect
I am sure mandrake has a tool for rescanning hw.
Sorry, I dont know mandrake too well. I know it was originally based off redhat, but I believe it has all its own tools.

Mandrake support doesn't list a hardware probing app?
