Check with commands:
#tail -f /var/log/messages
after you have plugged the camera on. After I plug my camera (Canon G5) to the
usb-port, I get the following lines to the /var/log/messages:
kernel: hub 3-0:1.0: new USB device on port 1, assigned address 3
devlabel: devlabel service started/restarted
Then, check what devices you have in you usb with command
lsusb reports these devices on my computer:
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 04a9:3085 Canon, Inc.
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 05a9:a511 OmniVision Technologies, Inc. OV511+ WebCam
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
If you do not see anything like this, check that you have usb-modules loaded,
#lsmod | grep usb
You should have at least usbcore and uhci/ohci/ehci (I'm using kernel 2.6,
there is some differencies in module naming). If you don't have any of those
modules, try to load those with modprobe or insmod.
Also check that you have usb enabled in your motherboard's bios.
If everything seems to be ok, check if the gphoto2 is able to detect your
Gphoto2 auto detects my camera and prints out
Canon PowerShot G5 (PTP mode) usb:

I don't know Mandrake, but I'm 100% sure that it has usb support.
> HOw do I know if USB ports are working well or not?
Do the tests above
