I would try the following:

*	# tail -f /var/log/messages
*	Plugin your USB Key and look for the detection to occur:
		
*	[  791.922357] USB Mass Storage support registered.
*	[  796.920197] usb-storage: device scan complete
*	[  800.574071] scsi 4:0:0:0: Direct-Access     SAMSUNG  HD501LJ               PQ: 0 ANSI: 2 CCS
*	[  800.574672] sd 4:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg2 type 0
*	[  800.645037] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] 976773168 512-byte logical blocks: (500 GB/465 GiB)
*	[  800.645524] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] Write Protect is off
*	[  800.645527] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] Mode Sense: 00 38 00 00
*	[  800.645530] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
*	[  800.646768] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
*	[  800.646801]  sdc: sdc1
*	[  800.659024] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
*	[  800.659060] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdc] Attached SCSI disk



Then go # fdisk -l :
Disk /dev/sdc: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x12345678



Mount /dev/sdc /media/$yourdisk


You<ll find the uuid of your disk (if need be)
root@:/media/disk# ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2010-04-22 11:35 3020c67c-bc22-4e5b-8140-6e880bef3deb -> ../../sdb5

I hope this helps.

Dear Franz

Thanks for your email. A simple question, but how I can mount f.e. the usb-stick within the ubuntu server 9.10 without any desktop-environment, >sudo mount /media/xxxx

Regards ikmi

below is my reply to a similar question.
if you are on a server without GUI, the process should be the same but 
you will need another application instead of synaptic. Check out the 
different front-ends to apt.

--
on the machine which needs packages but lacks a network connection:
start synaptic, select the packages you want install, go to "File"
select create download script. (don't close synaptic)

Save this file, move it to your other pc which has a network connection,
execute this script
take all packages back to the other computer.
In Synaptic go to "File" -> "Add downloaded packages" -> select to
folder in which the downloaded packages are located.
and you are done.

Franz
