Who makes the thumb drive? I'm not familar with the way Redhat sets up their Kernel but you may need to load the appropriate modules/recompile your kernel to have support for a thumbdrive.

Did you select the install kernel sources option when you were installing Redhat?

In a command prompt (assuming you have no SCSI or Serial ATA Drives) try the following as root with the USB Key/Drive plugged in (su) :

mkdir /mnt/usbkey
mount -tvfat -oumask=0000 /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbkey
cd /mnt/usbkey
ls

If you don't see the contents of your thumb drive then do the following :

cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

And Copy what it says and paste it here.

If your using the default RedHat GNOME shell there should be an icon that looks like a black computer monitor somewhere either on your bottom panel or your desktop.
