Mounting a USB pen drive in Fedora Core 1
Any USB pen drive plugged into a Fedora Core 1 box will not automount or be mountedc as a file system at all.

Red Hat is definately behind the times if they don't support them yet.

How can I use USB pen drives with Fedora?

Fedora is totally capable of using usb flash drives. Normally they show up as /dev/sda0 or the like. What have you tried?

I mount mine with the following command.

mount /dev/sda0 /mnt/flash -t vfat

After having created the /mnt/flash directory and the sda0 is assuming no other usb mass storage devices are plugged in, otherwise it becomes sda1 etc..

usb flash on key
I seemed to have solved the problem in Madriva 2010 and I reckon that this may well work in other distros.

In root do
dmesg to see what you got.

mkdir /dev/flash
mkdir /dev/sd0
mkdir /dev/sda1
mkdir /dev/sdb1
mkdir /mnt/flash
mkdir /media/usb_storage

give permissions for udev, dev, mnt

chmod o+r /dev/flash
chmod o+r /mnt/flash
