you haven't actually created a mount point (or DIR)
Also - did you partition and create a file system on
the USB device ?
use 'sudo' before each command in a terminal;
sudo mkdir /mnt/tmp
sudo mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/tmp orw,userid=knoppix
NOTE: hda1 (the 1st of 4 possible ATA/IDE drives,
usually) assumes that's the HDD you want to copy from
now go and copy files...
-- USB drive/stick needs to be mounted as well - and
likely uses /mnt/sda1 -or- /mnt/ubd1 (instead of
-- if using ntfs - just copying shouldn't be a problem
