Hi Joachim.
The truth is that I am waiting for some free time to try to make a new
kernel image. Do I have to have scsi support (all these sd** ??). Any
way, my system has one of those hp cdwriters that when trying to use
them as scsi devices throw the kernel into panick. There is a page in
the schilling site about it. So I had removed all scsi from my kernel,
to avoid the panick. I have been burning CDs without the scsi support,
with only dev=ATAPI option in cdrecord (see same page in schilling's
site). Any way, I had also had a heck of a time with an audigy card,
that I was able to install properly by following strictly the
indications in the alsa site, none of the indications aimed at Debian
did any good. After the first responses came I decided to make a new
kernel image with scsi support, avoiding any references to CDRom
support, just generic. The new image killed sound again, I figured that
the problem was in /lib/modules, so I changed back the previous
/lib/modules/2.4.22-old to /lib/modules/2.4.22, booted with new image,
and there is sound and all. But still there is not access to the memory
stick. Next I will try the solution that you have mentioned, since I
don't remember if it was included or not. Free time I will have tomorrow
some, I will give it a shot then. If you (or anyone) have any
suggestions arising from my story, please let me know. Thanks,
