No. I have added it, but pmount still doesn't work.

I see this won't work with the 2.4 kernel.

OK, I guess I'll have to now. It still seems strange to me that I can't get a 
decent USB mounting system going with a 2.4 kernel, given that Sarge still 
installs a 2.4 kernel unless you specificly ask for the 2.6 one.

No idea why the kernel is called that. I don't use xfs.

Thanks everybody for the help. I want to solve this once and for all. At the 
moment I have to wait ten minutes, then I can mount manually only one of my 
three cards as root and use it only as root. KDE will find and mount it only 
if it is included and correctly configured in /etc/fstab.
