mounting an mp3 player...

hey guys whats up.. iam about to buy an mp3 player.. and iam wondering which one i should get.. i know most of them out there dont need software to load the mp3s on the player.. so iam probably going to go for one of those...

iam just wondering is it the same as mounting my USB stick? this is what my fstab looks like

# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
/dev/hda2 / reiserfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 none swap sw 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs noauto,user 0 0
/dev/fd0 /floppy auto user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdb /cdrom iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdc /cdrw iso9660 rw,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdd /dvdrw iso9660 rw,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sda1 /usbstick auto user,noauto 0 0

can i get away by mounting the mp3 player with the "usbstick" command? or do i have to do add some lines in the fstab?

mp3 stick / usbstick

You might get away with your current layout.

Remember that some sticks use sda1 as the partition,
some will use sda (aka the whole disk) as the partition.

This varies with the different makes out there.
