[PLUG] external drive

This is not a mounting problem — hal or dbus isn't even creating a block 
device in /dev.

I have an external 2.5" drive in a USB powered and connected enclosure.  It 
functions fine in:
	*Win XP
	*Ubuntu 8.04 eee (gnome)
	*Ubuntu 8.10 (gnome)
	*Kubuntu 8.10 (KDE 4)

No device is created with Kubuntu 8.04 on 3 separate machines (eliminating the 
possibility that it is related to a configuration problem with a particular 

dmesg reports:

[2169494.590056] usb 5-6.3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and 
address 85
[2169494.684658] usb 5-6.3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

[2169505.218552] usb 5-6.3: USB disconnect, address 85

I tried a different, but similar drive that I borrowed from someone for the 
test, and the problem occurs with that drive as well.

I always thought that this function was handled by stuff that wasn't X11 or 
desktop environment related.  So I am trying to figure out if I can correct 

I prefer KDE and I am not ready to abandon KDE 3 in favor of KDE 4.
