Re: Dell 700m SD cardslot - HowToUse?

Nope. A compact flash card in PCMCIA shows up as an IDE device.

Here's my entries in /etc/fstab

# mount -t vfat /dev/hde1 /flash
/dev/hde1 /mnt/flash vfat defaults,user,noauto 0 0

However, I have a dedicated Sony memorystick cardslot (this being a 
Sony Vaio, of course) that shows up as a SCSI device.

# Sony Memory Stick
/dev/sda1 /mnt/stick auto noauto,users,exec 0 0

A USB thumb drive shows up also as SCSI.

# USB Thumb Drive
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/thumb auto noauto,users,exec 0 0

I found the memorystick location "sda" by looking in the KDE 
Infocenter, since the card slot is always there. With the thumb 
drive, I looked in Infocenter after plugging in the thumb drive.
