Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

yes i should have looked around and searched in the first place but i was too excited about getting the camera today, sorry
anyways, from the link above, i have found that i need to mount my camera as a usb mass storage device
but i can't find anything that explains how to do that, ive been looking for a while on how to do that but i cant find anything useful
Also when you followed MasterC's directions did you make a directory under /mnt/ called *sony* or in your case you were calling it *camera* for /mnt/camera? Well, I am linux Newbie so maybe what i am saying is really pointless. Have a good one.
i use suse 8.2, and it's got really well resolved hotplugging support built in. i use a sony dsc-p5 - just plug the thing into a spare usb port and a few seconds later, voila! a device appears on my desktop, ready for use.
of course, i know it's possible to set this up on any late distro with hotplug support, it's just really well executed with suse (i don't work for them, honest!), and works out of the box.
