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.
