This is a brief guide to getting your usb drives running under Slackware 10.2. The USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 modules are (i think) vendor specific. The one's mentioned in this guide should work on at least Intel chipsets and a few others.
Text in bold is to be entered on the command line, mostly as root user.
Step 1: Enable udev.
chmod u+x /etc/rc.d/rc.udev
Step 2: Mount usbfs on startup by adding the following line to /etc/fstab file.
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0
Step 3: Add following to /etc/rc.d/rc.local file so that required modules are automatically loaded on startup.
#Load USB 2.0 module.
#Load USB 1.1 module.
#Load USB storage drive driver.
Step 4: Restart OS.
shutdown -r now
Step 5: Plug in usb-drive and mount it.
mount -t vfat /dev/<device name> /mnt/usb
<device name> would either be sda1 or sdb1 etc. depending on availability.
