OK then .. let's get it to work. 1) Open /etc/devfs.rules and add the following lines: [system=10] add path 'da*' mode 0666 (Edit that line to suit your needs) 2) Open /etc/rc.conf and add the following line devfs_system_ruleset="system" (Edit that line to suit your needs) 3) Create a mountpoint for your pendrive mkdir -p ~/mnt/pen (Edit that line to suit your needs) 4) Open /etc/fstab and add a line like this one /dev/da0s1 /home/your_user_name/mnt/pen msdosfs rw,noauto 0 0 (Edit that line to suit your needs) Reboot Done ... Now you can create a "Link to device" on your KDE desktop and make it point to your /dev/da0s1. Insert your pendrive and click on your newly created "pendrive" device link. Remember to umount it before unplug it Otherwise .. get ready to wrestle hal/dbus and policykit ...
