      I recently 'upgraded' from the Buffalo-nas stock firmware v2.10 to the
      FreeLink Debian unix verion 2.6.12.6-arm1. Under the Buffalo nas
      firmware I had an external USB drive attached, which I could use with
      SMB (samba) under \\nas\usbdisk1.

      Now that I am running Debian linux, I can see the internal SATA drive
      under the mount point /mnt/disk1, however I can not see /mnt/usbdisk1.
      I added the automount package to the linux install per the
      instructions under :
      http://buffalo.nas-central.org/index.php/Removable_Media_-_Automount

      Unfortunately the usb drive still does not mount when it is removed
      and added from the host. When I run 'mount | grep usb' I see the
      following :
      usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec)

      However, df only shows the following :
      Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
      rootfs 465244 372328 92916 81% /
      /dev/root.old 13303 10980 2323 83% /initrd
      /dev/root 465244 372328 92916 81% /
      tmpfs 100 0 100 0% /lib/init/rw
      tmpfs 62920 0 62920 0% /dev/shm
      tmpfs 10240 8 10232 1% /tmp
      /dev/sda1 287785 14658 258269 6% /boot
      /dev/sda6 487184604 406252956 80931648 84% /mnt/disk1


      How do I get the usb drive to be added so that I can see the disk
      under /mnt/usbdisk1 ?

      ... OK, I figured this out : mount -t xfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usbdisk1 Just in case somebody else runs into this issue.

        OK, I figured this out :

        mount -t xfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usbdisk1
