As root, try this:
remove the usb drive
type 'tail -f /var/log/messages'
plug the usb drive in
note what messages show on the xterm
if messages show, post them here
if no messages show, this maybe a hardware problem (cable) or kernel
problem (no usb modules for that harware). If this happends, report
that. Also, what does 'lspci' and 'lsusb' show?
