This means it doesn't appear to be sda1. What type of device is it? I see it's some type of compact flash reader right? Does it support more than one type of removable media? If so it uses multiple LUNs and the device could be sdb1 or sdc1, etc... depending on how many types of cards it supports. Run: ]$ tail -f /var/log/syslog and then plug the device in and watch to see what devices are detected.
By the way, I am not sure if this has anything to do with the problem, but I don't know if it has something to do with the kernel. When I try to configure the kernel with kde I get the following message "The kernel configuration could not be read due to the following error: No hardware architecture was specified! Perhaps the kernel source code is not installed on this system, or the path to the kernel sources is entered incorrectly. Either your kernel sources contain invalid configuration rules or you just found a bug in the KDE Kernel Configurator." It seems that the location /usr/src/linux is empty!
This just means you have the kernel source installed. No biggie...
Thanks a lot for your help!
