USB hard disk................

Hi all,
I am trying to install a 200GB Hard disk in my linux box. I think, my box
can detect this HDD. Because after running kudzu my /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
shows following output

[root@LinuxBox sysconfig]# cat hwconf

Although for USB UHCI Root Hub it is showing driver unknown but it is
showing "Eagletec External Hard Di" in HD section. Also output of lsmod
shows that it detect the hdd.

[root@LinuxBox sysconfig]# lsmod

If the disk/device is detected you should get something
using dmesg | grep sd
Maybe you need SCSI Disk support.
