Ah yes, then your USB memory key has most likely been configured by
kudzu, and you should be able to see this in your /etc/fstab file.  This
is also a good option, however I wanted a solution that would allow me
to mount and umount the USB key as needed. 

I like to keep devices (e.g. internal HDs, CD drives etc.) that are
permanently attached (well, in comparison) in the /etc/fstab file, and
removable devices configured using autofs.

Thanks, I appreciate the compliment.  I will update the article as
needed.  Detailing additional commands (how to use vi, for example) is a
good idea.
