I have a no-name pcmcia card, which works fine with linux, all I did was
add the following line to the /etc/fstab 

/dev/hde1	/media/smart 	vfat	noauto,user,exec 0 0

and things seem to work fine. Course, the camera works fine via the USB
port too, (Fujitsu 4700) 

If the card beeps twice after inserting the media cart, then it should
work, may take a little figureing to find out what device it is listed
as. (Mine, and I suspect this is the standard, pretends to be an IDE
drive. Hence the hde bit.)
