Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The stick is formated to vfat.
The mount point is established in the fstab.

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.
May be it helps to plugin the stick and type
in your terminal (as root), and posting the last lines of the output (regarding USB) here.
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.
