Make sure it's not attached, type dmesg in a terminal, keep in your mind the last few lines, attach the drive, type dmesg again. If the kernel has added some more output at the end of dmesg then post it here.

Also, as root, check the output for lsmod, the usb-storage module needs to be loaded (assuming it's not been compiled statically into the kernel).

You really should consider installing something newer than Mandrake 10.1, too, as it's really out of date.
