I have a problem.
I have an external usb disk and when I boot Knoppix there is no usb disk icon on desktop.
Can anyone help me in mounting it?

Hi. To mount an USB drive it is different in kernel 2.4.x and 2.6.9. If you are using the 2.4.x kernel, then usb disk devices start at /dev/sda1, whereas if you are using the latest kernel it is now /dev/uba1.

Assuming you only have one USB disk in question, try mount /dev/sda1 <directory> or mount /dev/uba1 <directory> where directory is a mount point you created.
