Memory card reader (USB port) : ins and outs ?

Thanks for the answers gang, here is some more :

I rebooted into Win XP just to quickly check if it was working or not.
It was, so I rebooted into Warty, crossing fingers.
Had a look in the device manager, it created 4 SCSI devices, one for
each slot in the reader I guess : sda, sdb, sdc and sdd. And it saw the
memory card I put in it, as it created a "sdc1" device, reported as
using a vfat filesystem (as you would guess).

So I tried mounting it like this :

/dev/sdc1   /media/Camera  vfat defaults 0 0

It does mount it, Nautilus opens a window to show the content, but the
problem is that the pictures are in a folder, and the folder is not
recognised as such, instead it uses the "generic" Gnome icon (green foot
over a white background), and if I double click on it, nothing happens.
If I right-click on it, the icon disappears ! :-/

So I am almost there ! Maybe I need to specifiy some specific mount
options to get it working properly ?
