I would check to make sure that usb-storage is in the kernel or is a module.

check if you see "usb-storage" when you type lsmod.
You might want to modprobe it by hand if you dont (modprobe usb-storage) to load it. Was that device automounted or were you mounting it by hand?

hi,
this is part of the output of lsmod:
....
pcmcia_core 51585 2 pcmcia,yenta_socket
usb_storage 62345 0
scsi_mod 123457 2 sd_mod,usb_storage
uhci_hcd 31961 0
....
I guess i have it...right?

yup, so you have loaded everything you need. Maybe this is just something about the automounter.
Plug in your pen drive, then type "dmesg" (this is the kernel log). In the few last line, you should have a line refering to "new found usb drive" and it should tell you on which device it was assigned (most probably sda ). Then you might want to try to mount the device you got ( mount /dev/whatever1 /media/where_you/want ) by hand.
(if you aren't sure about the partition number you need to mount, you can use fdisk /dev/the_device_found then the "p" option to show the device partition table).

There is probably just something wrong about automount configuration... I'm not on a Fedora system right now nor using autmount, but I'll take a look about it, I think I should learn a bit more about automount
About fdisk, make sure you are root and you give the option once fdisk is running (mean you have to type "fdisk /dev/whatever" THEN to type p once at fdisk prompt. fdisk dont recognize "-p" as a flag).

PS: you are the first one to notice the "guru", or at least to say something about it

is there a way I can get the usb-storage service to start automatically? everything works fine for me except each time I startup I have to run the modprobe command to get it activated.

I'm not too familiar about fedora, but there is probably some "modules autoload" config somewhere.
In worst case, just add the modprobe line in /etc/init.d/rc.local (or just local? I dont remember), it should do the tricks
