tentwoa:/home/xyz # mount
/dev/hda1 on / type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620,gid=5)
securityfs on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)
/dev/sdb2 on /mnt/sdb2 type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sda2 on /mnt/sda2 type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sda3 on /mnt/sda3 type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sdb3 on /mnt/sdb3 type reiserfs (rw)
/dev/sdc1 on /mnt/sdc1 type reiserfs (rw)
/dev/hda3 on /mnt/hda3 type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sdd1 on /media/disk type vfat

the usb devices usb1, usb2, 1-0:1.0, 1-1, 1-1:1.0, 1-8, 1-8:1.0 and 2-0:1.0
are found in /sys/bus/usb/devices
