It should show an popup before actually mounting it, where it asks what

USB mass storage should not show up as hda* as it normally uses the scsi

Anyway, we have modified the hal package to mount devices with umask=007
to restrict remote users from accessing file systems mounted on a
terminal server. This might be the problem here, will check that later.
