FC3 is really old, and no longer supported. I don't believe that it
would auto-mount USB pen drives. To mount a drive manually, you
first have to know what drive it is. It will show up as a SCSI
drive. If you do not have any other SCSI drives, it will show up as
/dev/sda, and you will normally want to mount the first partition.
You also have to create the mount point before you can mount it. For
the first time mount, you would want to do something like:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/pen
If you can, update to at least FC8. It has the advantage of getting
security updates and bug fixes. It will also auto-mount your pen drive.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
