try this line in terminal...

should work. Be sure to unmount after completion or you may lose data. Also it's important it has a 1 filesystem setup (like lin3, lin2, fat32, iso9660, for example).

As with many things linux, I encourage (as I do it a lot) a good search and read. To have an answer given you fixes it for now. If you search find and learn, it's yours forever...and lets face it, trying to bash scrypt and not remembering sucks....

But to answer your question, yes, most unices do support thumb drives.

I'm surprised what your using doesn't recognize it when you put it in...Linux has come a long ways, FC5, SuSE and Ubuntu recognized everything I threw at them so far.

If someone tells you to su rm -rf /
