SD mounting problems

I had a similar problem with my card reader under RHL9.

What I did was recompile my kernel, making sure to enable 
"CONFIG_SCSI_MULTI_LUN=y" in the .config file.

However, in response to a bugzilla report I put in on the subject, I got 
this response:

  - When using RAID storage configured with Logical Unit Numbers (LUNs)
     greater than zero, it is necessary to enable LUN support by adding
     the following entry to the /etc/modules.conf file:

     options scsi_mod max_scsi_luns=255

     After modifying modules.conf, it is necessary to rebuild the initial
     ramdisk using `mkinitrd`.  Refer to The Official Red Hat Linux
     Customization Guide for more information about creating the ramdisk
     image with mkinitrd.

You might try either option.
