Add your device to /etc/updfstab.conf.default. This works on RH9. It adds the mountpoint automatically when you connect your USB disk. e.g. /mnt/flash One still need to do a mount /mnt/flash before accessing it.

Create a directory /mnt/usbdisk. Put the following lines into your Bash script:

#!/bin/bash modprobe usb-storage cd /mnt mount usbdisk

Save this script into /home/username/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts

Now plug in your usb disk, then right-click desktop and run the script you just saved. usbdisk icon should appear.
