Question USB memory sticks

I have a USB "memory Stick". This is a USB 2.0 based device that acts as a removable disk when inserted into a USB port on windows.

I am using Redhat 9.0. The device is recognized out of the box, but I have not cracked the code on the mount parameters to use. I have tried using the vfat filesystem without luck.

In the ideal world, I could set it up so that when the device is inserted, it would automatically be mounted someplace (e.g. /mnt/usbdrv0) automatically. The model I have in mind is inserting a CD while using the KDE desktop.

It seems that this one should be pretty easy. Any ideas?

This is what works for me...

/dev/sdb1 /mnt/usbkey vfat noauto,user 0 0

If you changed that "noauto" to an "auto", then it should automatically mount.
