I am able to mount my USB flash drive but I have to enter the line in the etc/fstab everytime, make the directory in the mnt directory, then the mount command. Is there a way to have this automatically done when I plug the USB drive in? It is a Lexar 256MB flash drive.

If not is there a way that at least I can get the diretory and line in the etc/fstab to stay in there? Typeing the mount command is a minor thing as long as I do not have to go through the whole process every time. Thanks.

Yessir there is!!!
Alrighty! here is what ya gotta do.
Make the directory where youw ant to have the drive mounted to...for me i have it /usb. now /usb has to be empty! Ok next nano(or your favorite editor) /etc/fstab.
Do this then, I use sdb because i have one sata drive.

/dev/sdb1 /usb auto noauto,user 0 0

you cna just type mount /usb and bam it mounts=)

now you can probably switch it to be auto mounted by switching noauto to auto, but i am not completely sure.

Then just save the fstab! and bam its all good! the users allows you to mount it as a non-root user, but the user must be int he users group=)
