I think what you did - mounted it read only (I think it does it my default). Don't remember exact line to make it writable. Try typng man mount to find out how to mount it writeable

Use mount's -o option, followed by "rw", e.g. "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb -o rw". If it's NTFS, well, you won't have read-write support. Also, do yourself a favour and get a newer distro, as Red Hat 9 is old and unsupported.

Please use better thread titles in future and post in the correct forum.
