[Scottish] USB memory sticks and SuSE 9.3

It seems time to open up a terminal window (that's Konsole in Suse).
After you insert the stick, open the new 'floppy' icon, and get the
error message... after all that, type in these commands in the terminal
window and send the output here:

dmesg | tail -100

That should give us a start to figure out what's going on.
If you're couragous you could look up a line for 'sda' in the mount
output and try to browse that directory.

My guess is the floppy icon is used because the filesystem on the USB
stick is msdos.
