I have a Cypress nand flash drive, usb too. I can mount it manually using 
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/flash. However, if I define the mount path in 
/etc/fstab and issue mount /mnt/flash, it won't mount the flash drive at 
all. As a matter of fact, it will remove this mount path from /etc/fstab 
and put it in file /etc/fstab.REVOKE. Any idea why I can't set the mount 
path for my usb flash drive.

Another question. If I pull the flash drive, then later plug it in again, 
it will now be recognized as /dev/sdc1, not /dev/sdb1. Is this normal at 
all (ls /proc/scsi will show 2 usb-storage-* entry now)?

Thanks
