Im sure this topic has been discussed before but my problem is rare... I have 2 USB disks that i need to mount in my mandrake 10.0 with kernel 2.6.3. Ive tried mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb but the response is: sda1 is not a block device... Ive also tried:

modprobe usbcore
modprobe usb-storage
modprobe uhci

Mandrake can see the disks, but as unknown...

Thanks in advance!

Look at the output of dmesg for error messages pertaining to the drives.
