[PlanetCCRMA] Interesting behavior from Fedora 3

Hello all,

While this isn't a sound-related question, I thought
I'd ask since it seems some CCRMAns are really good at
diffusing Linux problems. I am using kernel
2.6.11-0.3.rdt.rhfc3.ccrma (with Fedora Core 3). I
shut down my computer last Friday as I was going out
of town for the weekend with everything working
completely fine. I came back today and rebooted it,
and now none of my USB devices work. I don't believe
it's a USB problem per se, as my USB printer works
fine and "/sbin/lsusb" gives the following (which
doesn't seem unusual):

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 03f0:0604 Hewlett-Packard
DeskJet 840c
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

The error I get when trying to mount mass-storage USB
devices is "mount: special device /dev/sdx does not
exist" -- it seems like a problem with SCSI (I think
-- odds are I'm wrong though). I had devices sda1 and
sbd1 in my /dev diretory before I left (SCSI devices
for two USB mass storage devices), but they are no
longer there. Does anyone have any suggestions as to
what may be going on here??
