Ok... "im facing probs in mounting my pen drive" doesn't tell me a lot about the problem, is it? Is this a drivers problem? Are you asking how to do? Is there some mount syntax errora or any typical PEBKAC? Is the drive mount but incorrectly? Is there a permission problem? etc etc etc... I can think of at least 2 thousands different things that could be a "problem". I'm not in front of your computer, so I need _details_ of what's wrong.

Second, it's would be in your own interest to choose better thread title. "Problem in Vector Linux 5.0" doesn't give people a lot of insight about what the problem is about == less chance to get helpep

Thirdly, don't post 2 problems not related in any way in the same thread. This quickly lead the conversation to a labyrinth of post and some people do not wish to answer to some question, due to lack of knowledge of a certain subject. As example, I worked a lot with USB device but I don't feel very bright about modem, I won't help you with modem. In any case == less chance to get helped.

I think that you need to mount the partition not the whole device, something like
Code:
#mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /pendrive
/pendrive has to be made before you issue the mount command.

Also if you are plugging in and unplugging the USB device, hot plug may be increasing the drive letter 1 each time /dev/sda /dev/sdb /dev/sdc etc.

Once you get the drive mounted, unmount it before you remove it.
Code:
#umount /pendrive
Also read
Code:
man mount
Good luck.

How did you find out that sda was the correct device? Guessing device will not work.

Plug in your pendrive and please post the last few lines (15-20 last lines) of "dmesg". Once your device is plugged you should get some info about it in dmesg, like if it was corectly recoginzed and what device it has been assigned to.
