Assuming it's supported, you would usually do something like:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt

/dev/sda1 means SCSI disk 1, partition 1: It will change if you already have SATA drives or any other drives that use SCSI functionality. "-t vfat" means the disk is FAT formatted, flash disks usually are. "/mnt" in where you want the disk mounted, change it to suit you.

You may need to be root to mount it, depends how your system is set up

Don't forget to unmount when you're done and before you remove the device.

Code:
umount /mnt
or wherever your mount point was.

You need a command prompt: There should be an option in your menus to open one. Terminal, command prompt, xterm, something like that.
