Do you know that there is a special Ubuntu site? askubuntu.com –  Uwe Keim Dec 24 '10 at 11:07
Enterprise Linux is Redhat, not Ubuntu. –  ismail Dec 24 '10 at 11:08

With the command dmesg, find the name of your disk, like sdb. After, you can create a folder in /mnt, like /mnt/disk.

To mount it: mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/disk

You need to mount a specific partition like sdb1. I already edited your answer. Also, you may need to provide the fs type. –  Khaled Dec 24 '10 at 17:24
