#mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /where\ ever\ you\ want\ it

that is my lsmod. The memorex thumbdrive that i have did not require any sort of driver, all it needed was its own addition in /etc/fstab

bland@kedavra:~$ cat /etc/fstab

/dev/hda1 swap swap defaults 0 0

/dev/hda2 / ext3 defaults 1 1

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0

/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,users 0 0

devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0

proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

/dev/sda1 /mnt/thumb vfat user,umask=0 0 0

bland@kedavra:~$

that is a cat of my /etc/fstab
