If you're using an IDE system and the USB stick doesn't mount automatically.

On the command line, as root:

mkdir /mnt/usb

then

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

You can shortcut (symlink) to the /mnt/usb folder with

ln -s /mnt/usb ~/Desktop
(Do the above command as user not as root).

You might need to make the /mnt/usb folder writable for users.

If you're on a SATA machine then

mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb

If neither work then unplug the usb stick and then plug the usb stick back in and open a terminal and type, as root, tail -f /var/log/messages and watch the messages that appear in the terminal to see which /dev/xxx the system assigns to the usb device then append one of the above commands.
