Permission trouble (usb)


So I have some files I have transfered to a USB drive via Windows 7 a normal user that I can run on windows with no password or anything (It's a minecraft server) Now I need to get these files onto my desktop which runs Slackware 14 which I currently have the usb drive mounted at /mnt/usb0 and want to move or even better I'd like to copy but don't care how it gets done but move the folder these files are in to my home server folder. So the folder I need to move or copy is at /mnt/usb0/ and the name is PhantasyCraft now the location it needs to be moved to is /home/shawn/server/ but when I try to run it it wants root permissions last time I tried before deleting it to try again and this time wanted to get an opinion on how to reserve my windows permissions for these files so that I hopefully can run under linux as a normal user with no special permissions. Any ideas? thank you

I feel like reading Chinese, which language has no punctuation!

BTW, What's the output of the "mount" command?
