Success! How do you mount a USB stick on an OLPC laptop and get a window of the contents?
Tip #1: Try several of the USB ports. I was successful in the lower right side port.
Tip #2: Once inserted, the USB stick will automount under /media/UsbStickName. Just do an
ls /media/ to see your stick there.
Tip #3: For the GUI, look in the Journal. The stick shows as an icon on the bottom. Click it, and the window of contents opens!
Tip #4: To unmount and eject the drive, use the Journal's USB Drive icon. Trying to use the
umount command in Terminal fails, claiming the drive is busy.
