I have three (2-256 and 1-128), and they work great... I've used them on RH9, FC1, and FC2.

lexmark jumpdrive secure/Mandrake 10 yes

I have a 256meg Lexmark USB keyfob drive and Mandrake 10 automounted it about 2 months ago when I first installed it. An icon for it popped up on the desktop (KDE) before I started looking for a way to mount it.

I have not tryed the "secure" feature as nothing on it is worth securing.
