This depends on the hardware that is reading the disk. Will most likely just appear as a SCSI or IDE drive.

try 'cat /proc/partitions' to see if the disk's partitions show up there.

What type of flash are you using? Compact flash(CF) with a PCMCIA adapter? If so, it will probably be registered as an IDE device and show up in /proc/partitions as hde/hde1 or higher. Check the man page for 'cardctl' to see some commands that can be used to eject, mount, etc. the CF device.

DO this (as a root) :

mkdir /mnt/usb
mount /dev/sda1 /mmt/usb

or try (if the above line doesn't work)

mount /dev/sda2 /mmt/usb
