USP pen drive not showing up?


Hello there

I'm quite new to linux and brand new to Slackware and the XFCE desktop, just installed Slackware 11 and XFCE fine with no problems, booted up and all that - gotten to the xfce desktop, put my USB flash drive in and nothings happened? It just doesn't seem to register? can't find it in the file system or anything?

What's happening and what do I need to do to access my pen drive?

Thanks

Hi, the last few lines say:

So, then do 'fdisk -l' to find your device (usually /dev/sda1).
then create a mount-point for it, for example:
mkdir /mnt/usb-pendrive
then mount the device:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb-pendrive
