I understand that the new Owl-current ISO image has recognized your
hardware without the need for you to load additional drivers, however
I'd like to answer one of your questions anyway:

Yes - with the June 1st Owl-current ISO, our default kernel includes USB
mass storage support. Your USB "mass storage" devices (flash memory,
hard drive, etc.) should appear in the system as if they were SCSI disks -
/dev/sda, /dev/sdb and so on.
However, pre-built third-party drivers (kernel modules) tend to assume a
very specific kernel version, so they might not work with the kernel on
Owl boot CDs. If your hardware is supported by the kernel version that
we use - just not the specific build of it - you're likely to have
better luck building those kernel modules right on the CD-booted Owl
system on tmpfs (if your RAM size permits for that). This has been
explained to you before:
