Hi Bob, I assume by flash drive you mean a small devise that plugs into
a USB port. I have a 2 GB kinston thing. when I plug it in it shows up
on my desktop FC6 and I can in a Windows way slide things onto the
kinston image and they are then found on the file system.
If you want to put a file system on it go to
/media/name-of-your-flash-drive/ and you will see everything that is on
the drive. And you can cp -a anything less than 4GB. The file system on
it is FAT32. I have a small flash drive with ext3 on it.
