I have run into a bizarre situation I haven't seen before. I am at a remote location today accessing my Fedora 14 box. I have an external USB hard drive connected to it. I was accessing fine all morning but I installed some updates and did a reboot. Afterwards, I no longer can see that drive (mount doesn't show it). Is it because I am ssh'ing in and not logging in to the box locally? I'm not sure when the USB drives would be detected and mounted.

What does fdisk tell you.
It sounds more likely that the drive is not set to mount /etc/fstab, and needs to be mounted manually.
Assuming /dev/sda2 is your usb hdd. You would use something like this
