Soon to be first time Linux user - Question about USB Flash Drives
This weekend I plan on getting rid of Windows Vista for good and installing a fresh Ubuntu 9.04 OS. I have never really used a Linux distro before so I am pretty new. I have been reading up on it and to be honest I really can't wait to get away from Windows OS (I really don't want to dual-boot either).
Anyway I tried doing some searches for my question and either can't find a good response or its just an outdated (by years) thread.
Currently, I make frequent use of a USB flash drive to transfer my school files between my personal laptop and my university's school computers (They currently run Vista Business). I'm not too worried about file conversion because all of our school's computers run MS Office 2007 but also OOo 3 as well.
Currently the flash drive is just plug and go between the two computers. When I connect it to Ubuntu (Mount it might be the correct term?) will it show up with little to no problems and allow me to transfer in a similar way? (The flash drive is currently in a fat32 file system).
Like I said I've never done too much stuff in a Linux OS before but I just want to ask about this before I install this weekend.
