Have you tried "locate usb-storage.o"?  On my RH system it's in

If you're running the stock Mandrake kernel, I would imagine that the 
driver should be there in /lib/modules, and if it's not, I'd suggest 
reinstalling the kernel according to Mandrake's instructions (I would be 
really surprised if Mandrake 8.2's default configuration didn't include 
that module).  If you did compile your own kernel, there's a good chance 
that you didn't compile the usb-storage module.  If that's the case, 
compiling a new kernel would seem like a reasonable thing to do.

If, in fact, you have the usb-storage module (in the correct 
/lib/modules/... location for the kernel you're booting with), then I 
don't know what else to suggest.  In my limited experience, usb storage 
devices have Just Worked (TM).

Good luck,
