Getting Slackware 11 Dist. to Recognize / Mount ScanDisk USB Pen Drive

As the subject states I'm using the Slackware dist. Slackware 11.

I'm not sure of which daemon I need to get this to work. Or if I can even get it to work. I

heard a rumor that Fedora has some, or multiple, dameon(s) running to find and mount USB devices such as this.

I would like just a reponse to see if I can be pointed in the right direction.

I looked through the other USB mounting topics and didn't find anything that seemed to help.

Any ideas?

Nevermind, my buddy came over and helped me figure it out.

fdisk -l

mount -t vfat /dev/<device> /mnt/pen

Oh well...
