    Ok, I just installed it and I know next to nothing about it. I'm trying to get it to recognize my USB flash drive. Hardware browser detects it, but how do I access it? I'm running FC2 if it matters.

    It might mount it automatically, so check /mnt or /media for a directory that wasn't there before you plugged it in. If it doesn't mount it automatically, mount it manually:
    1) Run dmesg on the command-line and look for something about a USB device being plugged in. Look for a line saying something about /dev/something (probably /dev/sda1 or something similar).
    2) Decide where you want to mount it and, as root, do mount /dev/whatever /mount/point/you/like

    Hope that helps :)
