I would propose not to run kudzu at all. Just use the mount command to mount your USBStick...

Why make simple things complex?

I am sure Fedora automounts USB sticks. If using GNOME this should jus show up on your desktop or if using KDE, you should click on the media icon and "removable media" should be listed somewhere.
