You should have configured the kernel for USB and probably VFAT.
# USB Host Controller Drivers
# DOS/FAT/NT Filesystems
I recommend compiling in drivers and only using kernel modules when you have to.
Plugging in a memory stick will be handled by udev. The stick will show up as
/dev/uba (I think), but you will have to mount it manually:
mount -t vfat /dev/uba /mnt
