So this is a jumping-off point on a new problem. You have a USB stick
that you can't get to work.
What gets added to /var/log/syslog when you plug in the stick? It
_should_ get assigned a /dev/sd* device node which you can then mount.
Note that I've never used a desktop environment to know how something
like hal handles this.
When I installed Hal, the computer kept asking me if I wanted to play a
game. No. I did want to play a CD.
Open the drive bay door Hal.
Open the bay door Hal.
It also insisted on calling me Dave.
