redhat assumes USB drive should be for cache -- how can I disable that?

when I stick in the USB drive it automatically assumes it is using it as a cache.  How do I disable that?

Can you explain further?  What makes you think it is using it for a "cache"?  

And a cache for what?

not sure -- I am not at the machine...  hearing this second hand...  will try to get details...

In the meantime, what would you expect to happen when plugging in USB drive to redhat 6.1?   should it automount it somewhere?

Yes, it should mount it and show a link on the desktop.

From the file system it usually mounts in /media or /mnt.

Create a directory to mount the device in:
# mkdir /mnt/usb

Mount it into that new directory
# mount /dev/sdXy /mnt/usb

During inserting the usb monitor your logs
# tail -f /var/log/messages
