    Trying to mount a flash drive - RH9


    Hi,

    I recently installed the "small linux box" option of RH9.

    I have succeeded in trying to mount my cdrom. It mounted and i was able to see its contents

    I quite have a problem with my flash drive...Its a 256 Sony manufactured device. I followed the tutorial at:
    http://www.extremetech.com/article2/...1256766,00.asp

    I did the
    cd /mnt
    mkdir /usbstick
    and then added the line
    /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick vfat user,noauto,umask=0 0 0
    to my fstab file at /etc DIR.

    Now I plugged in my flash drive and did
    cd /mnt
    mount usbstick
    I get no response, so i decide to reboot the PC....and re-did
    cd /mnt
    mount usbstick
    i then get the message:
    Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
    SCSI device sda: 1048640 512-byte hdwr sectirs (537MB)
    sda: write Protect is off

    pls what do i do next...how do i acces the contents of the usb.....are the above messages correct?

    toks

    Try:
    Code:
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick

    It looks like it worked. Try:

    ls -al /mnt/usbstick

    or

    cd /mnt/usbstick
    ls -al
