Do not use quotes and you need to specify the mount point not the device. The UUID replaces the device ID. I assume you know the desired mount points?

Example:
Code:
#<file system>                             <mount point>   <type>  <options>        < dump>  <pass>
# sdb1
UUID=3cd28a59-bdbe-4a00-b372-d750b88f5a9e      /           ext3    defaults,noatime   0       0

Is it the same as the label ?

When I click on that, mount opens up. ????

I can't even open flash drives that I plug in.

I am downloading a 64 bit version of Slacko on another laptop.

But then, even if I burned to a CD, it would do me no good on the desktop computer.

My desktop has no CD/DVD but one is on order.

Bad thing about Slacko is that it will not let you place an o.s. on a flashdrive. (Unlike Windows)

Things will eventually get better. :-)

Click on what?
Is sdb internal or external?

You would need to create them so that if, in your particular case, you navigated to the /mnt directory you would see all the entries, sdb1, sdb2, etc.. If they don't exist, obviously they won't mount. Many current Linux systems use the /media directory to access external drives. If you plug in a flash drive and check the /media directory you might see a new directory there with either a Label name or UUID. Have you checked there?

What exactly have you tried? Any Linux should be able to put an OS on a flash drive if you mean a Live CD. Use the dd command.

A mount point is nothing more then a directory. It you look under /mnt and do not see sdb1 then that could be one reason it isn't mounting.

sdb1, etc are in the mnt directory.

dd can not put an hybrid iso on a flash drive.

Seems like any program that can do a sector by sector copy would work ?
