i just got a lexar multi-card reader, plugged it into one of my
USB 1.1 ports, got confirmation via /var/log/messages:

which seems to verify that it knows about the device. "usbview" also
confirms that there's a "Multi-Card Reader". so far, so good.
now, as a test, look around, rip the SD card out of my sharp zaurus,
drop it in, the little green light on the reader comes on, good, and
... ok, what device do i mount? since /udev/sda is the block device
of the two listed above, i try that but get "No medium found."
i'd try this with my CF card, but i don't have it handy. anyone else
have one of these and know the incantation? thanks.
