This is a FAQ. See <URL: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/faq/disks.html#USER-FLOPPYMOUNT >. > The other question is, is there a better way to mount up the device or > control it via a usb tool or is the way I am doing it correct? You don't need usbd to do this. You could use usbd to mount the device when it is attached, if you really wanted to. However, you can't use usbd to umount it, because you have to do that *before* you detach it, so that seems pretty pointless. If you want to automount on attach anyway, see the usbd.conf man page. <mike -- Mike Meyer <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> http://www.mired.org/consulting.html Independent WWW/Perforce/FreeBSD/Unix consultant, email for more information.
