Found one here that is said to work on OpenSUSE 10.3  

I think you'll find most if not all USB card readers are supported as  
mass storage devices and will just plug and play.  I have a Verbatim  
SD card reader which I got from SVP (www.svp.co.uk) with a 64MB SD  
card included for free.  Works a treat on both Ubuntu and Windows XP  
and it cost me about £3.

If I was you, I'd go for one of the multiple in 1 card readers which  
does the popular formats.  You never know when it would come in handy.
