There should be a module in either the standard kernel, or the alsa
modules, that will work with that.

These errors are not important - they mean that the drive doesn't
support eject notification, or something like that.

Looks good.  You should be able to mount it then:

mount /dev/hdc1 /mnt
(as root)
"ls /mnt" should then show you the files on it.

"man mount" for more information on how you can mount it on a different
part of the filesystem.

This is bogus.   The partition table isn't stored _in_ the partition, it
defines it.

Hope this helps somewhat.
