How to mount an USB disk in redhat?
Hi friends,
Now I am working with redhat.
The system does not support my USB disk (Pen drive).
What is the procedure to mount it with the file system?
I also seen the manual for mount command. But I couldnt.
Anyone help me in this.
Thanks in advance.

I normally plug in the pin drive and then type:
tail /var/log/messages

Normally I'll see messages about the pin drive with a device name.
Usually /dev/sdb1 or /dev/sdc1
Then you issue the mount command, but you first need to know a mount point.
Mount point is any dir on your RH system. There is probably a /mnt with a few dirs under it (cdron & floppy). Make a dir for your pin drive like so:
mkdir /mnt/pen
now you are ready for the mount command ... type:
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/pen

and that should do it.
