I'm trying to connect a new unformatted disk, using usb to fc5.
Now I intend to partion this drive using fdisk. The question is
how do I know what device it will get?

I suppose it should be something likde /dev/sda as other USB drives I
connect
seam to use SCSI emulation. But if I try fdisk /dev/sda and the rest of
the alphabet
nothing shows up.

Hi Uno Engborg!

This found googling "format usb hard drive linux"

# General Tutorial
http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Add_a_new_hard_drive

These I found by Googleing "blank usb disk linux":

# One hard for the 2.4 series Kernel

# For a flash drive but issues are similar

I would be interested in looking at system and messages in /var/log
along with dmesg, also there are usb query tools:

Good Hunting!
