Thank you greengreek and Musher0. Nice code.
I tried using this code running from a flash drive.
A problem occurs: On initial boot up the USB flash drive containing the operating system and save file is on sdc2. When this codes runs, the flash drive containing the operating system and save file is then relabeled as sdd2. The save on shutdown fails because the save file is now on sdd2 instead of sdc2.

Is is possible to have a code that mounts only the USB flash drives (no hard drives or CD drives) that are already plugged in on startup excluding the USB flash drive that contains the operating system and the save file?

I have one USB flash drive with Puppy 528 on it and another USB flash drive for downloads. I would like only the downloads USB flash drive to mount automatically at boot up. Any ideas?

Thanks

Instead of unloading/reloading the USB kernel module, try this:
Code:
udevadm trigger --subsystem-match="usb*"
