I've recently converted my mini HP 110-3053CA  netbook to run Ubuntu (Lucid,
10.04) instead of Windows 7.

I really like Ubuntu. Its much faster then windows on this little machine

I had to work with the web help to make my sound card, and my wifi network
to work again.

my 2- in 1 media reader is no longer working.

After looking into the problem a bit, it seems that there is no
Linux-compatible driver to interface with the card reader.  after running
some diagnostics with Ubuntu I discovered the following PCI devices, which I
believe refer to my card reader:

01:00.1 Class ff00: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 5288 (rev 01)

Since i am new to this, please help me with a step by step instruction.
