What linux distribution are you using?
I will assume your USB drive device is /dev/sda and it only has one partition. I will also assume your distro will not attempt to configure the drive automatically.

You will need to create a mount point (Its just a directory). login as root and in a console windows perform the following commands:
mkdir /mnt/usb
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
before you remove the drive be sure to unmount it:
umount /mnt/usb
