I did a search for all the 'hal' and 'udev' files and compared them to a 
working kde 3.5.9 system, I added some and removed some, it did not 
help. :-(

I installed GParted and gparted can see my usb drives, so I got the UUID 
and added them to fstab so I can use them, works ok for me, but I don't 
think everyone will want to do that.  ;-)

Also what's the word on the Squeeze packages, are they ready for testing?
