So i am running Debian Sarge and have an Integral compact flash pcmcia card adapter which i insert a 32M compact flash card into and the assembly into my laptop second PCMCIA port, execute /etc/fstab and get the following:

# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0

No compact flash

Whwn i execute dmesg
i get the following:-

hde: CF Card 32MB, CFA DISK drive
ide2 at 0x140-0x147,0x14e on irq 5
hde: attached ide-disk driver.
hde: 62976 sectors (32 MB) w/1KiB Cache, CHS=123/16/32
/dev/ide/host2/bus0/target0/lun0: p1 p2 p3 p4
ide_cs: hde: Vcc = 3.3, Vpp = 0.0

how do i access hde and mountn the compact flash and read the information???


Help i am new to this and Debian, maybe i was being too ambitious, but this facinates me so i want to conquor this with some help.

By the way i downloaded http://www.vanemery.com/Linux/USB-Compact_Flash.html
as a guide and have executed the first part but unable to get access to the compact falsh, which is what i want to do.

To manually mount as root
1. create a directory to use as a mount point.
mkdir /media/pcmcia ( for example )
2. mount partition
mount -t vfat /dev/hde1 /mnt/pcmcia
3. Be sure to unmount prior to ejecting card.
umount /media/pcmcia
