[gNewSense-users] Removable Drive

Completed my install of gnewsense and it looks very good.

I had trouble trying to make the wireless device work, but finally I
gave up and attached a wire instead. It was very smooth from there.
Updates and synaptic additions went well.

I have some of my old files backed up to a usb removable drive, and it
recognized it immediatly and opened it. I moved some files in from the
USB removable drive, but I could not write back to it. It says I done
have permissions. 

I like that there is only one password since I am the only user and it
is unlikely anyone else will need an ID anytime soon. I had to 'sudo su'
with my password instead of plain 'su' though. 

So here's my question: What do I have to do to mount the removable USB
drive so that I can write to it. Failing this I can't use it as a backup

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
