mounting USB devices with pmount

Usually USB devices are recognized and mounted automatically. If this does not happen, you may use pmount to mount the device manually.

First of all you'll have to figure out the device name of the USB device by studying the output of dmesg, e.g.:
sd 1:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
sdb: sdb1
sd 1:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk

Here the device to use would be sdb1, in general this should be the case for computers with one built-in hard drive. Now pmount /dev/sdb1 should mount the stick below /media/sdb1/.

pumount /dev/sdb1 will unmount the device again.
