Indeed. I've just finished playing around with things and my NetBook can
boot the Flash Media from all 3 of its USB ports. However, GPartEd doesn't
recognise the drive and Linux doesn't automount it so I can't have a look
at the drive's contents using a file manager.

*Yes, I have. I thought the device was broken. Please open a new report
about it, and I will confirm and triage it for you. *
OK.. how many do you want me to create? Both GPartEd and the system in
general can't access the data on the flash drives. However, you can install
Lubuntu with them so that's OK.
