When it is mounted, you certainly should be able to see it.

# mount /dev/sda1 /media/USB_DISK
# df

I'm not sure why space is a problem - unless mkbootdisk needs to use
some temporary space. Here is what I do:

1. insert USB stick
1a. if it gets auto-mounted, unmount it.
2. NFS mount /inst-source/ at /mnt
3. chdir /mnt/boot/i386
4. perl ./mkbootdisk --32 --partition /dev/sda1 /mnt
5. done
6. umount /mnt
7. remove USB stick.
