Is there a way to automatically copy an flashdrive to a predetermined folder?

The reason I ask is, we have a home server running Fedora 12. I would like to be able to let anyone just plug in a flashdrive, and have Fedora automatically grab and copy all the files on that flashdrive to a specific share.

You need to write a udev rule

See here for an example.

If that's not enough to get you started, try a search on writing udev rules
