learn about USB mounting in Linux:
http://www.gctglobal.com/Download/3rd_LED/PalmKey/palmkey.html

(I don't know how applicable to Puppy this is, but it looks like a very good tutorial introduction to USB internals, for anyone who is having trouble mounting USB devices and needs to learn how to do things manually. Maybe someone knowledgeable will write up something similar for Puppy?)

Preparing USB

Before plugging in the Palm Key, you should make sure your system has the USB kernel modules inserted (or built in, if you don't want them to run as modules). Specifically, we need the usb-uhci (or usb-ohci) and usb-storage modules loaded. use "lsmod" to see if they are there. If not, use modprobe:

modprobe usb-uhci usb-storage

Note: the usb-uhci is a driver for one type of USB bridge. If it doesn't work, you probably have an OHCI bridge, in which case you should modprobe usb-ohci.
Running "lsmod" now should show the usbcore, usb-ohci or uhci driver, and the usb-storage driver, among others.

Plugging in the device

Once the modules are loaded, you can plug in the device. Wait a few seconds, and then change directories to /proc/bus/usb.

/proc/bus/usb is home to information about USB devices. The directory should have a file for devices, a file for drivers, and a directory for the root USB hub....
