automounting my USB flash drive


Hey all, im new here and to linux/Debian OS as well. im trying to get my system to automaticlly detect and mount my usb flashdrive when i click on the desktop link but i get this message - Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: can't find /dev/sda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

After a while it will detect it but it takes forever and im at the mercy of waiting untill it decides it wants to pop up.

Any help would be apreciated, thank

1. goto /mnt
2. mkdir usb
3. you try to vi /etc/fstab
4. "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb vfat,user,noauto 0 0"
5 after you edit press ESC :wq to save your new settings

try this if it is ok
