It rings a bell. Aren't card readers one of those things that need 
something counter-intuitive in the kernel to make them work? I've a 
feeling you need to build in scsi support into the kernel, then mount it 
as a scsi disk drive. /dev/sdsomethingorother. It's a while since I've 
done it but I recall just trying all the devices until something 
mounted. I think I was using debian stable, probably with a 2.6 kernel.
