I bought another card reader for my smart media (camera) cards.  Red hat 9 
recognizes it, but I can't mount it.  Tried /dev/sd[a-f][1-7]  and get 
"not a valid block device"  

Several files seem to recognize the card reader and /var/log/messages 
reacts to plugging and unplugging the usb cable.  /var/log/messages sees 
it on sda which I take to mean indicate /dev/sda, but nothing works.

usb is many times faster than serial when it works.  Any suggestions will 
be appreciated.
