USB probs

Mount problems with Puppy Linux distro
fstab info
#mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/USB
The USB stick is not visible in mount window. The light on the USB stick is on.
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
/dev/root on / type ext3 (rw,data=ordered)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw)
none on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)

usbcore 127128 6 usblp,usbhid,usb_storage,ehci_hcd,ohci_hcd
The module that appears to be missing is uhci_hcd which is the driver for basic USB1.0 support.
#modprobe uhci_hcd
if you can't detect a flash drive, it may be necessary to put the command earlier in the boot process. Locate the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local and add the above line to the end of the file. Then reboot.
At the risk of asking the obvious, did you try clicking the Refresh button? USB devices are not always detected immediately by Pmount.
