I've used USB/Compact Flash adaptors and USB flash memory sticks on
RedHat 8.1, and 9. I think it was a little more seamless in 9. You may
have to "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/flash" or some such as root. I think that
if you put an appropriate entry for it in /etc/fstab you can mount and
unmount it pretty seamlessly in Nautilus.

Ugh. I ran into dependency hell when trying to install Firefox on
RH8.1. Going to put something more recent on that machine eventually.
