usbmount mounts the first available disk to /media/usb0, the second
to /media/usb1, etc. It offers "fixed" addresses like
I can't say for sure what devices are plugged in at startup, they're
well removable media.
dmesg shows there's no /dev/sd* at startup, so usbmount doesn't know
there's a device to mount. So it looks like a kernel-related issue. I
don't want to give up my compiled-in usb-storage tough. Could this
possibly be related to my SCSI .config? (see below)
