Flash Drive

Do I need to mount my flash drives in order to use them on RedHat 9? One is FAT, and the other one is FAT32. If I do, please explain the how-to's. Thanks.

You have to mount everything unless the system does it for you. Use the 'mount' command to see what's mounted at any time.
Mounting thumb drives/pen drives/flash drives is explained all over LQ. Just do a quick search and you'll see many examples that will guide you through the rest.
