Hi, experts,
Some days ago I got a USB pen-drive, and it is said that it does not need
any driver to work for both Windows and Linux. I found it works well for
Windows but doesn't work for Linux (RH7.1). How should I set it up?
It seems I need to mount it first, but how to do that?

not sure if RH 7.1 has it, but the newest version of the Linux kernal have built in UFD support, u'll need that compiled into your kernal for USB keys to work.  There might be more to do than that, but a true linux guru would give you a better answer.
