I would still use kudzu/updfstab instead of the manual mount point.

With the manual mount point, if you put in another memory stick
it will most likely not work, or if you plug in two memory sticks it
will definitely not work.

kudzu and updfstab take care of this.
First delete your flash entry from "/etc/fstab", delete the /mnt/flash
mount point, and add the following to the end of your "/etc/updfstab.conf"

device diskonkey {
     partition 0
     match   hd diskOnKey
     match   hd "Lexar DIGITAL FILM"
     match   hd MultiMedia-Disk

If you previously added the flash section to "/etc/updfstab.conf",
then remove it so that it doesn't conflict.

If this works then submit a bug to bugzilla so that in the future
your memory stick will "just work" without any editing at all.
You can look at this bug in bugzilla for an example,
