Hi, well
I have 2 problems
the first:
I have external hdd and I want that the system create a symlinks when I turn on my hdd

usbdev -v
give me:
Controller /dev/usb4:
addr 1: high speed, self powered, config 1, EHCI root hub(0x0000), VIA(0x0000),rev 1.00
 port 1 powered
 port 2 powered
 port 3 addr 2: high speed, self powered, config 1, USB TO IDE(0x0702), GenesysLogic(0x05e3), rev 0.02
 port 4 powered
 port 5 powered
 port 6 powered
 port 7 powered
 port 8 powered

Well I want to add a script in usbd.conf

then I have add this before device "USB device"

device "HddCombo"
        devname "da[0-9]+"
        vendor 0x05e3
        product 0x0702
        attach "ln -sf /dev/{DEVNAME} /dev/hddcombo"
(perhaps {DEVNAME}s1 is better)
but it doesn't work

My version of freebsd:
uname -a
FreeBSD vincent 5.3-STABLE FreeBSD 5.3-STABLE #0: Sat Feb 19 19:03:33 CET 2005   root at vincent:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/VINCENT  i386

Well, when I connect my hdd nothing append
just this in dmesg
umass0: Genesys Logic USB TO IDE, rev 2.00/0.02, addr 2
da0 at umass-sim0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
da0: <Maxtor 6 Y160P0 0811> Fixed Direct Access SCSI-0 device
da0: 1.000MB/s transfers
da0: 156334MB (320173056 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 19929C)

Ok, the second problem is that I want to mount this disk with a user
If hddcombo is correctly link, I have this fstab line
/dev/hddcombo              /mnt/removable  ext2fs  ro,noauto       0       0

Well, how can I do a mount command in users mode, in order to allow people I want to mount this, without login in in root

ok thx for support
