Read the man page for mount. Also, please use more descriptive thread titles in future. When you post a thread, it does tell you to do this..

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

Means same as in every other Linux; mount the first partition (sda1)
on the usb-hdd that was picked up as scsi hd one (/dev/sda) and
mount its file-system to the mountpoint /mnt/usb, irrespective
of which file-system it has (auto)


Cheers,
Tink

Please don't use things like "help me" in your subject. It's too vague and won't attract the attention you need. Read the link in my signature for details.

In any case, the mount command is what connects a drive or partition (hard disk, floppy, CD, USB stick, network share) to your system so you can access it. In this cse, it mount the device named /dev/sda1 at the location /mnt/usb, with automatic detection of the filesystem type.

There's plenty of information on how mounting works in Linux. Try google: "linux mount". Also read the mount man page: "man mount".

A bit of correction here:

it is

mount -t auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

Keep in mind the spaces, that play an important role.
