I am using Fedora Core 2 distro which does not have usbstick support.
I added the line:
/dev/sda /mnt/usbstick vfat noauto,owner,rw 0 0 0
I also tried:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick vfat noauto,owner,rw 0 0 0
the error message that I get when I try mounting the usbstick is:
mount: can't find usbstick in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
I have added the /mnt/usbstick dir
any suggestions would be helpfull

Instead of hda1 you need to use sda1 ...
You still didn't tell me how you originally tried to
mount it, because the fstab line actually matches
the physical device ... maybe your problem with
the original attempt was that you were trying
but weren't actually sitting in /mnt but rather
in ~ or something along those lines.
