"Loading module 'sd_mod' for 'SCSI disk support'...

typing 'ps ax' on VC2 tells me:
.....
.....S   /bin/sh /var/lib/dpkg/info/cdrom-detect.postinst conf
.....S   /bin/sh /bin/hw-detect cdrom-detect/detect_progress_t
.....SW  [scsi-eh_0]
.....SW  [scsi-eh_1]
.....SW  [usb-storage-0]
.....SW  [scsi-eh_2]
.....S   modprobe -v sd_mod
.....S   sh -c insmod   sd_mod
.....D   insmod sd_mod
.....R   ps ax

This box has a built-in multi-cardreader on USB. I meanwhile found out
that, on the 2.6 system, this seemed unable to read my CF card (or I
don't know how 2.6 is supposed to handle this, at least 'dd if=/dev/sdb
of=/dev/null count=4' returns "reading `/dev/sdb': input/output error").
Could this be the real reason?
