USB Flash Drive
I got a USB pen drive. How do I use it in Linux?

Just Plug it in. I should auto-mount.

It does not.
I plug it in and nothing happens. My distro is probably different then urs so I probably need to manually mount it. I have a lot of USB ports so Im not shure what to do.

Edit your /etc/fstab and add this at the bottom:

/dev/sda1  /mnt/usb  vfat  defaults,rw,noauto,users,sync  0 0
Then what you want to do is type:

mkdir /mnt/usb
Now when you want to use it, plug it in then type:

mount /mnt/usb
Then before you unplug it type:

umount /mnt/usb
And yes, it is really "umount" not unmount!

lol, ok. Thankx.

I have tried unmount before then I realized its umount.
