Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

then when I tell it to mount to /dev/usb which I created I get
on my system (Mandrake 10.1) the USB appears as /mnt/removeable/ and usually appears as another drive on the desktop.
I did have a problem, whereby it was not mounting. I discovered that this was to do with the service not running on boot up. This can be looked at in 'system setup' (can't remember the exact details). It should then mount automatically, I did not have to manually mount this (as I have with another distribution).
It might be worth checking this before manually trying to mount it.
