>> I'm having continued problems with USB thumb drives. I want to plug it in and have it work. Eg. I try to paste a file to it and it doesn't work. All the permissions are owned by root on the drive. How do I config it to work when I plug it in.

I had similar problems with Ubuntu Lucid.  I solved them by uninstalling 
usbmount.  (Which is odd, because I had to install it in Karmic to make 
usb things work.)  I've never understood why, and I don't suppose this 
is the full answer to usb follies.
