Re: Various questions (3)
Right after you plug in your thumb drive, run "dmesg" from a
command-prompt. The last messages should be something like .. device
detected at "sda" or "sdb", or "sd"something. Whatever it is, your thumb
drive should be at that device, on the first partition.

So, if dmesg says something about "sda", then you should be able to
mount your thumb drive via:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
Likewise, if it said "sdb", then
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt
should work. Then, the contents of your thumb drive should be in /mnt.
