    Plug-in Pen Drive and execute fdisk -l command to check device name assigned to Pen Drive. Execute df -h command and check if it shows mount location of Pen Drive.
    Code:
    su -
    fdisk -l
    df -h
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I used grub some months ago, but that was because this linux uses grub as the bootmanager.

    Further, your stick needs to be made bootable.
    Here are two links which might help:
    Boot and run Linux from a USB flash memory stick | USB Pen Drive Linux
    Rene Mayrhofer - Making a USB Stick bootable with Grub

    If you have still trouble, pls, let us know:
    Do you get an error message?
    What did you do sofar?
    What happened?
    What did you expect to happen?

    hope this helps

    There is no need to create a bootable stick for automount. Actually boot files have nothing to do with mount.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I presume you tried the reboot option to see if it was a temporary problem? I am running CentOS 5.3 (started with 5.0 15 months ago) and have had this problem on occasion. Usually, rebooting has fixed it. I have also had problems when I formatted the drive with NTFS, in which case I have to manually mount the device.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
