Read the man page for mount. You don't mount files or directories, just filesystems (e.g. those found on partitions).

What helps me is to think of "mount" as "connect".

You connect a partition (containing a filessystem) to a node on the directory tree.

mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/disc

/dev/sdb1 - is location where is my flash drive
/mnt/disc - is directory where I mount it

you must mount as root

One should note that USB sticks aren't always going to be called /dev/sdb (even on the same machine, which is really why you should use udev). Also, it is possible to mount devices as a regular user. You'll need an fstab entry for your device along with "user" (or "users") in the options column in order to be able to do this.

You are aware that FC6 is well beyond EOL(end of life) and that there have not been(and will not be) any updates for about six months?
