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.

make sure you do
etc. before you change the mountpoints. you might also want to change noauto to auto so it will mount automaticlly when you plug it in. If you plug one in that only has 1 partition, i don't know what will happen
you can mkdir either /mnt/usb1 or just /usb1 (this is linux, not windows, the user gets to make decisions, not the OS ) just as long as the fstab matches. If you want you can mount it under /home/[username]/usb1 each device/mountpoint/file is treated the same as far as where in the tree it may fall, remember. As to the invalid mount point, you may remove it, but usb-storage module may re-create it, or something from hotplug may, as to that someone with more knowledge will have to help there.
