hi everyone!

:?: can anyone please tell me the command line to mount a pen drive from UNIX (or linux) shell (using bash or csh whichever)?

* I am asking for FreeBSD.

Boot the machine with the pen drive connected. Run df to see if by some luck it saw the drive & mounted it. If not run dmesg | more to see if FreeBSD sees the drive & the name it gave it. Create a mount point & a symbolic link for it. The cd to the mount point to view the files.

hey thanks for the suggestion! :D

it worked. i was confused because i am not very much accustomed with command-line interface of UNIX. I have always used gui linux with xfce or kde (at most gnome). they readily show the usb on desktop or have a gui mounting tool. :|

but your suggestion will be very useful to me in the future as well.

thanks again!
regards.

Some partition manager type tools are a good way to do this as well.
