How do I use USB (keychain) Flash Drives?
Current Linux Distributions today support USB.
Type:
mount
You should get something like this:
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
Type:
cat /proc/bus/usb
But its safer to use:
less /proc/bus/usb

Pluging in your device.
Type the same command again:
less /proc/bus/usb

It should show the device information.

Use fdisk /dev/sda to check partitions.
You most probably have just /dev/sda1.

Mount it:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/yourDir


USB pen/flash/keychain drives are viewed by your system as
a SCSI device. Does your system support SCSI?
If you have trouble mounting your device check your
USB and SCSI support.


Use umount and eject to unmount it.

How do I extract files from an ISO 9660 CD-ROM image file?
No tools needed to extract files from an ISO image file in linux/unix/bsd!!
Just mount it like a CD-ROM.

mount -oloop MY_BIG_DISK.iso /mnt/yourDir

All your files show up in /mnt/yourDir!
