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.
