Right, so your USB stick is partitioned with a single partition.

So that partition is mounted to /media/BK and it is formatted as ext3.
It looks good to me.

The only other thing I have to say is that when you copy your tarball
to the stick, make sure you run:
sync

and then do a checksum comparison. If they are both the same, then you
can safely unmount it and you shouldn't have any problems on your F12
box. If you do, then something else is going on on that side, perhaps
an overclocked CPU or something.
