Mounting a memory stick under Linux

A short reminder for myself and for all those who are lost when no auto mount works:

1. Verify that the device is recognized in 'dmesg', write down the device name. e.g. /dev/sdb
2. mkdir /disk_on_key
3. mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /disk_on_key
4. at the end un-mount by: umount /disk_on_key

Good luck!
