This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Do you know that there is a special Ubuntu site? – 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
+1 for dmesg. – Khaled Dec 24 '10 at 17:25
