Default SOLVED:how do i mount usb

just installed netbsd and wondering how do i mount a usb stick
i put the usb in and it comes up as "sd0" but when i try to mount that it says no such file or folder so i try sd0a > sd0g and still no mount or it says device not configured yet
any idea
is this correct typing "mount -v -t msdos /dev/sd0 /mnt"

See http://www.daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=2232 According to the second post in this thread the demonstrated OpenBSD method, albeit with a few minor modifications, also works on NetBSD.

Code:
mount -t msdos /dev/sd0i /mnt

Actually no, NetBSD starts counting foreign file systems from "e", so it will probably be sd0e.
