find where its located with dmesg then add a line to your fstab and just use auto and then from now on you can mount /dev/usbstick and it will auto mount and you odnt have to worry about what fs it is. since i never make sense explaining stuff heres my line:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbdrive auto noauto,rw 0 0
so /dev/sda1 is where it is. i mkdir'ed /mnt/usbdrive and it mounts read/write. I dont know what the 0 0 means so maybe someone can explain that.
i think we should make a sticky on this topic because it is such a common problem, in fact i remember having it when i first installed slackware 9 (my very first distro was slack 7) and bought a 64mb thumby.
