Create a mount point e.g. /media/usbdisk and do the following
Code:
#mount -t vfat /dev/sda /media/usbdisk
Substitute /dev/sda with the device name of your own USB disk. Post back if you have any problems.

You plugin the usb device and then run dmesg. For example if I plugin a USB device into one of the usb ports and do
Code:
dmesg | tail
In the output, I get
Code:
sd 4:0:0:0: Attached scsi removable disk sdc
That shows that /dev/sdc is the usb device I have just plugged in.
