Thanks, this was what I needed! (OK, this is 2.6.4, but I'm sure 2.6.5
will work okay tomorrow too)

Even if I disabled udev, it wouldn't work. From /var/log/messages:

The USB thumb drive is fine, and if I do try to mount /dev/sda1, it
won't work. lsmod reports:
scsi_mod 94280 4 sd_mod,sg,sr_mod,usb_storage
So I look like I'm supposed to be set, but I'm not, which is weird
