        Another problem shows up, the flash drive wont mount? It shows
        up in lsusb but is not listed under /media as it should be. I
        don't even know how to mount it manually. It comes up on the
        desktop as /media/disk1 . When I click on mount it errors
        "Failed to mount "disk1"

        It looks like I am headed toward another re-install. Hate to
        burn up my allocated ISP usage with the updates and added
        program downloads. But I broke it myself so I can't complain!
