    What distro are you using?

    I'm on Gentoo with a 2.6.14 kernel and 2 SATA drives, so I mount mine as /dev/sdc1:
    Code:
    mount -t vfat /dev/sdc1 /mnt/flash
    But that's just what I do as an example.
    Flies of a particular kind, i.e. time-flies, are fond of an arrow.

    Depending on your distro it is most likely already mounted in either /mnt or /media. You can look for the volume name of the key there, or sometimes it may be listed as sda1_removable or removable device.
