USB storage devices?

How do you go about accessing these? I'm trying to install the Nvidia nForce drivers in hopes of getting my on board Ethernet card to work on my A7N8X-E Deluxe motherboard.

On Fedora you have to add a listing into the /etc/fstab file for a USB storage device to be available. Mine says:

/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbdrive vfat noauto,user,users 0 0

Obviously, you have to create the /mnt/usbdrive directory first for it to work.

I read a tutorial on how to do it 'properly', but I haven't gotten around to finding it again...
