Vaughn, you have to find out the X in sdX. So when you plug your usb
drive in, go to a terminal and type dmesg. Then look at the last few
messages to see what letter X is.

It might say sdb or sdb1 or sdc or something like that. What giorgio
is saying here is that you want to ignore the number after the letter,
if there is one. (so if sdb1, you just use /dev/sdb)

good luck
