I guess you may be right. usb-storage is indeed present, but not loaded
automatically. I can insert module usb-storage, and it gets properly (i
presume) 'linked' to scsi_mod. However, if i try to mount /dev/sda1, i
still get errors: it says it is not a valid block device (which is fals,
it works perfectly on FC1 and other linux systems).

That is exactly what i am running. So, i should compile a new kernel?
Mmmmm...this is not really on the idea of a desktop distro, isn't it?
But i wonder if i am the only one experiencing such a problem. I mean,
memory sticks are quite normal, aren't they? Are you all using kernel wihtout problems?
