Where to find mount point for USB Removable device


Mandriva 2006 handles usb removable devices better than any I have seen before it,however the new Devices icon on each desktop opens a konqueror window whose address is "media:/sda1"

I am trying to get to that device through a terminal and neither "media:/sda1" nor "/mnt/sda1" nor "/dev/sda1" will get me there

Anyone got any ideas please?

/mnt/removable is where I go in a terminal session.
Code:
[don@localhost ~]$ cd /mnt/removable
[don@localhost removable]$ ls
Mike/         Next Blu Builds/  slavedrive/
My Pictures/  Recycled/         System Volume Information/
[don@localhost removable]$
This is listed as sda1 in my desktop devices icon as well.

Edit: Depending on what you plug in it may change, here is what happens when I plug a second mass storage device in:
Code:
[don@localhost removable]$ cd /mnt
[don@localhost mnt]$ ls
cdrom/  cdrom2/  floppy/  ipod/  removable/  removable1/  slaveWD200/  winXP/
[don@localhost mnt]$
So, go to /mnt to see what the mount point will actually be called, then you know how to mount it.
