I have a 256 MB USB Flash Drive (Lexar) Which works plug-and-play with Windows.

Problem is, Linux doesn't recognize it. Not that I expected it to, but it would be quite cool if it did.

Is there any way to make Linux see the flash drive?

Actually, you can configuer mandrake to auto-mount it. When I get back to my system I will tell you exactly how to do it. But for now, this will get you going.

Go to you /mnt folder and make a new directory, say usbkey

mkdir usbkey

than plug your key in and give it a sec, than run this command

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbkey

now you can change into the usbkey folder and you should be rocken. To unmount it type

umount /mnt/usbkey

That will get you going if you need it now, when I get home I will tell you how to auto-mount it.
