Does anyone have any experience with USB flash disks and linux.

I use one of these things a lot for carrying files around. (128 MB cost me
50.) It is recognised by windows as soon as I plug it in. With RedHat 8.1
it wasn't, nor was it when I turned the machine off and back on again.

With SUSE 8.1 it is recognised when I turn the machine off and then back on
again. Is there any way to make the machine recognise it without having to
go through that (preferably from the KDE desktop?)
