I want to create a hard drive image for my laptop. So, I booted into single-user mode, logged in, and plugged in an external hard drive, intending to unmount / and dd it. I then did modprobe usb_storage and got, among other things (no errors):
sd 2:0:0:0: Attached scsi disk sdb

And yet, there is no /dev/sdb, so I can't mount the drive:S. Am I forgetting something really obvious here? The relevant device nodes should be created automatically, right?
