Accessing files on external USB drive using UNIX?

Hi Folks,

I'm a serious UNIX newbie... I'm using a bash shell on Mac OS X.

Basically I took up unix in order to use a specific image processing software package... I've learned enough to write a script to batch process all of my images, but I have so many that I would like to use an external (USB) drive to hold the data and point the script towards those files.

Is there any way to navigate to an external drive in UNIX?

Thanks.
-Brent.

Internal drive, external drive, it's all the same to UNIX -- all mounted drives get grafted onto that big 'ol directory tree somewhere. Under OSX, I believe they appear under /volumes/ . dmg's appear there too I think. Though that's just an OSX convention, UNIX can mount things wherever you please.
