Ok.. So, what exactly is the problem? What have you tried to do so far, and what is not working?

Have you connected the drive and tried to mount some partition and it won't mount?

Are there error messages? Have you checked dmesg or syslog after trying to access the drive? If there are messages, please tell us what they are (copy & paste them here).

Or maybe, do you not have USB ports on the machine in question? Or what?

Please, add some detail to your question so we are not shooting in the dark about what exactly you require.

As per GrapefruiTgirl, if you want your questions answered properly, provide proper information.

Judging by your username, I take it you're using RHEL 5.1? RHEL 5 will generally automatically mount your USB.

Plug in your USB drive, give it about 30 seconds or so, and then post the output of the following command:

# mount
