I'm a little new to dealing with the USB interfaced devices, but assumed it
would create an IDE drive for the device. Sorry- my oops.

The /proc filesystem contains all of the relavent information about the
system, so my advice would be to check for a /proc/usb directory or
something similar. It's possible that the drive information is contained
within the usb interface information. The naming convention should be
similar to what's under the ide tree I'd guess.

Sorry I can't be of a little more help than that right now, but if I find
any more info I'll pass it along.
