I see no messages from f9 when I plug the drive in.

This works, but I do not recognize the device name in the dmesg output.
Also, dmesg reports that it cannout mount the device because ufs is
compiled read-only, not read-write.

ffs2 is close to the name used by openbsd.

Actually, I found nothing at all useful regarding mounting usb devices.
Also, I found nothing at all useful using either man or apropos on
fedora. I found no useful info in the fedora f9 bible on mounting usb or
what usb device names look like. In this regard, OpenBSD has much better
documentation on USB. Maybe there is a hook for usb in fedora I just
don't know about yet. I also tried a google search for usb info on
the fedora site. I'm just having no luck with this today.
