Could you rephrase "This much days It work smoothly"? Do you mean the same stick worked some days ago? – fschmitt Oct 6 '10 at 7:05
Also, could you post the messages in the tail of /var/log/messages corresponding to the failed mount attempt? – fschmitt Oct 6 '10 at 7:34
@fschmitt, thanks for ur comment. I formated my pendrive again with fedora and now it working smoothly in RHEL5 too. – Kumar Oct 7 '10 at 4:10

Problem may be in file system formatting. Format pen drive with FAT32 file system in windows. After that it'll work properly.
