Good, but I don't remember having to write any rules. It more or less
works on etch. Less lately, because the d*mn write tab broke off just
today on my sandisk 1 gb and will have to send it back to them ;(.

Automount works in etch as well. I had to upgrade the kernel from
2.6.12 to 2.6-15-7 in order for the card to be recognized in my no-name
USB something-in-1 card reader. Prior to the upgrade, it would act as
if there wasn't a recognizable superblock in /dev/sdd1. Sincd sarge
uses 2.6.8 (IIRC), this might pose a problem.

There were some issues where the card mounted with wrong permissions,
but that seems to be fixed now. (Still, because of the broken tab, I
can't write anything to the card now.)
