Fedora should just recognize it the moment you connect it, just as Windows would.

Check you mount table to see if it's there.

What is the error by the way. and fedora should recognize it automatically.

Mounting Manually..

1) switch to root

2) /sbin/fdisk -l

3) Locate your flash disk The entry should be /dev/sdb1 or /dev/sda1

4) Type mount /dev/sdb1 /media (Or wherever you want to mount it)
