USB mount/umount

I could not see (within KDE) where the "remove safely" icon was so I did a machine shutdown and removed USB devices (1 stick, 1 HD) after rebooting Mandrake 2008 falls out of graphic mode ....
Then I reconnected same drives same way:
Now it says: Buffer I/O error on device SDA, which was the USB HD) umount says the device is not found
lshal list is so big I cant analyse it
(probably possible by redirecting it to file and then viewing that, but thats beyond my NIX knowledge)

For future reference, you can unmount (remove safely) your usb-stick by either:

1. Clicking the Menu button then going to System Menu--> Storage Media


2. Right click your panel then go to Add Applet to Panel and select Storage Media.

When you plug your usb-stick in it will appear in the panel, you can then left click it and use the safely remove option that appears in the menu.

You can also configure what Storage Media is shown by right clicking the media and selecting configure.
