Thanx for the suggestion.  It says:
Apr 22 23:01:31 tompth kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:07.2-2, assigned
address 3

I don't get the proper name for the valid device from that.
If I am not misguided by the manuals, there is a vfat filesystem on the
memory card, and we are supposed to use the ide-scsi driver, so access it
as a SCSI disk.  As I said, that is how it works up to the 2.4.19 kernel I
have.  But with my newer kernels whatever SCSI disk device I try, I always
get this type of error message (mount: /dev/sdx# is not a valid block device).

Any suggestions?
