    Hi folks,

    What is the proper command for mounting a flash drive?
    Something like mount /mnt/fd ??

    any help?

    Many distros will automount them for you.

    Otherwise, you have to find out what device ID it is given (/dev/sda, /dev/sdd, etc) adn then what partitions are on it (most have 1....)

    Then mount it like anything else

    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

    First type fdisk -l before connecting flash drive
    after connecting flash drive,
    again type fdisk -l
    Please see the difference between both the out puts.
    That is the drive to be mounted.
    Example: /dev/sda1 is the difference between both the outputs,
    Then, use the command mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
