Did everything go accordingly up to that point?

 

Did you go:

 

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick

 

before trying to mount it with..

 

mount /mnt/usbstick

 

?

 

 

 

I added this to my .bash_profile which is in the home directory..

 

 

#!/bin/bash

 

/sbin/modprobe usb-storage

mount /mnt/usbstick

 

That way it mounts every time I reboot. If it's not there, it doesn't matter.

Did you do;

 

cd /mnt

mkdir /usbstick

 

...first?

 

Then issue the command mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick.

 

Remember, there is a space between mount and /dev/sda1, as well as sda1 and /mnt/usbstick.

 

This also has to be done as root user.
