How to Mount Android Tablet running Honeycomb

I am attempting to figure out how to mount my Acer A500 tablet to a Redhat Linux 6.3 laptop so that I can copy some manuals in epub and PDF format for reading on the road. My device does not appear to be mounted when plugging in the USB cable, but is reported when running the 'lsusb' command.
