Debian GNU/Linux Kernel 126.96.36.199-rt13.2
My PC does not beep when I plug in the USB stick.
The stick is formated to vfat.
The mount point is established in the fstab.
The reply is:

The fdisk output shows that your USB-key is not recognized as a storage device. We need the contents of your /var/log/messages, I wonder why it isn't there, it should be.

I don't know about the first question, but I wondered already, why you are using a 2.4-kernel in a realtime-version. What is this for a machine? What is it's purpose. And which Debian version are you running? To find out your Debian version you can try
I did check the 1st item, apparently - "USB is supported in all 2.4.x kernels" however, this issue should be addressed by my vendor.
The system that I'm using is for the temperature control of a laser. I would like to be able to retrieve stored temperature records (through the USB) without having to use another pc and a lan connection.
