OK, I know this is a really stupid Q and I should know this by now, but I don't
I'm trying to use a USB jumpdrive in Linux (Lexar Media 256 MB jumpdrive 2.0), and the instructions on how to use it in Linux are as follows:
How to connect a Lexar USB Jump Drive to a Linux system (RedHat 7.3)
1) as root, launch the Hardware Browser (Use Main Menu (Gnome foot) >
Programs > System > Hardware Browser)
Note the attached Hard Drives
2) insert the Jump Drive into a USB slot
3) launch the Hardware Browser again and note the new drive - it will be a
/dev/sda, /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc, etc.
4) cd to /mnt and mkdir jumpdrive (for example)
5) cd out of /mnt/jumpdrive
6) mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/jumpdrive (for /dev/sda)
The Lexar USB Jump Drive is now mounted at /mnt/jumpdrive . Use it as you
would any Linux directory.
I don't quite have the mounting thing down. How do I mount this?
