OK, I'll reply to my own post with an update in case it is of any use to other
people. Thanks for the help to those who replied. In the end it turns out to
by incredibly easy. The first trick (and the one I was missing) was that you
can't mount the PCMCIA card as an empty drive - you need the memory stick in
there. Once this has been done it's just plain easy! I simply booted with the
card in place, and noted the messages to identify that in my case the card
shows up as /dev/hdc1, I then added:
/dev/hdc1 /digital auto defaults,rw,user,noauto 0 0
to /etc/fstab and was away :-) (of course creating /digital first!)
Again, thanks for the pointers which assured me I was heading in the correct
direction. Definately the right decision not to get the USB verion of the
adapted - which strangely enough was more expensive!
