no sda* in /dev ,trouble with flash rom


Heyall.

I'm having a little trouble mounting my flash rom. I have hda* in /dev but no sda* which is leaving me with no way to mount my flash rom. Or at least no way I know how. Hopefully there's a quick fix? I've tried playing around in my /etc/fstab by adding the line
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usb_flash vfat rw,noauto,users,umask=0 0 0
and then rebooted and still no luck.

Thanks in advance.

[edit]

Oh yes, maybe I should specify. I have no GUI. It's all terminal. And, of course, the machine is local. It's sitting right in front of me.

Stick your USB drive into a port.
Then run dmesg and see where it is sitting.
Then mount it something like this for example as root.

Code:
mount -t msdosfs /dev/sda1 /home/<user>/mounting point
or something similar.
