How to access a usb thumb drive in linux?

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.
