Question Where is my USB ?

Hello World!!(oups)

I am relativly new to the linux world but starting to get the hang of it :P
The problem i have or more like a question is:

I recently installed Slackware 10.2 with 2.6.13 kernel.It was a succes because my sata drive was found at once so all thing went according to plan.How ever when i wanted tou mount my usb-flash i got to a dead-end! Up until now my usb was found at /dev/sda but now my sata drive is sda so my question is where is my usb ?

The drives normally are named sda 1,2,3 (drive one Partition 1 and 2 and 3), sdb (drive two).. etc. So your usb drive should bee on sdb, maybee also an later letter like sdc or sde.
