I am a absolute linux newbie, i have been loading my first linux server(debian), my longterm goal is to start replcaing my win servers with linux. I have a machine loaded that does not have internet access yet and i need to setup nvidia drivers, which i downloaded off the net on to a win 2000 server. I wanted to use my usb memory stick to copy the drivers onto the linux machine.
I have read quite a theads on this topic, but all the files/directories that they request are not present on my machine.
I have no SDA drives, it doesnt look like SCSI is set up on my machine, in one of the threads they mention that the flash drive uses SCSI emulation. I cannot find a hotplug service on this machine,.
I have read the following thread

I another thread, they mention that you must go to the following web site to get the hotplug service, but his page doesnt work
install the hotplug package
( hotplug is developed by Linux Hotplugging Project linux-hot-plug.sourceforge
Can someone tell me how to go about installing this memory stick from scratch
