I have tried to mount to mount a key/stick on LiveCD RIPLinux without success.

[(R )ecovery (I)s (P)ossible Linux rescue (]

I tried those lines:

(I plugged my usb key)

# mkdir usbflash

# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbflash
mount: mount point /mnt/usbflash does not exist

(my usb key wasn't detected)

My usb key is formatted in fat32.

Any suggestions?

If you want to create a subdirectory called usbflash under /mnt then the current working directory must be at /mnt or you need to include the entire path i.e.
mkdir /mnt/usbflash

You can look at the output of the console command dmesg to see of the drive is detected and its device ID. I am not familiar with this distribution so I do not know if it automounts USB drives. If you manually mount the
drive you will to need specify the filesystem.
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbflash
