USB Pen Drive on 2.6.x

Hello - I use Slackware 9.1 which comes with Linux 2.4.22. Recently I upgraded to Linux 2.6.5 but I do not know which kernel options/modules I have to enable to get it working under my system. I would very much appreciate any help regarding this matter.

Thanks in advance

You need support for USB Mass Storage devices (and support for USB, obviously).

You can either compile it either as a module or into the kernel.
