just tested mine here with a USB flash drive.

plugging in the USB drive automounts it, and adds a symlink
for it to your home directory.

So I can select the 'USB disk' link in my home directory to
get to the USB drive when I 'save-as' in the applications file menu.

(all my stuff is in a 'data' dirctory in the drive, but I am
not sure if that was me or the Eee)

just remember to right-click on the USB icon on the task-bar
and select 'safely remove' when you have finished
