mounting an external hard drive


I have a hard drive that is recognized by my OS (Redhat 9). Under the hardware browser it's listed as /dev/sda. My question is, how precisely do I mount it? I know I need to use the mount command to a certain location, but what location?

it's something like:
mount /dev/sda /location/location
right?

thanks much

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

You might need to modprobe usbstorage first. It might not work. Redhat 9 is pretty old and USB support has come a long way since then.
