USB stick doesn't work


Yesterday I have reinstalled my Linux Fedora 3 distro, but now my memory stickk doesn't work anymore. I have installed ALL programs, because I want to play around with Linux a bit... could this be the reaon that my usb stick doesn't work?
Oh, my system also doesn't read cds for some reason?

I would appreciate any help.
Thanks, Jenny

double check the kernel config for

USB Stick requirements:
Scsi disk (sd_mod)
OHCI/UHCI for usb support
USB removeable flash drive support
CDROM requirements
CDFS and ISO9660 support

If these were modules, add them to modules.autoload or change them to be included into the kernel. You'll have to recompile then. If the are modules, use insmod to load them.
Installing everything shouldn't have an impact on getting devices working since it is kernel support that allows those devices to work, though the above support should be included by default.
Posting the output of lsmod might also help a little.
