If you prefer to do things the Linux way, you better stick with Linux.
That said; /proc is considered (and has demonstrated to be) a security
risk and has therefore been disabled by default in FreeBSD 5.x
Besides, *BSD's have traditionally used different mechanisms to interface
with the kernel. sysctl(8) comes to mind, but there are others.
In this case, dmesg will tell you if your usb-stick was recognized. So will
usbdevs, as mentioned in another post.
