USB external storage devices are automatically recognized and mounted. HOWEVER - that's only been true since about Fedora Core 3, as far as I recall. Not only is Fedora Core 1 OLD, but it's no longer being support for patches.

I recommend you upgrade to FC4, then try your external drive. I think you'll find that it behaves as you'd expect.
