SCR335 SmarCard Reader on SuSE 8.1


I am trying to integrate SCR 335 USB SmartCard Reader from SCM Micro onto my SuSE 8.1 installation (running kernel 2.4.19). The USB drive is recognized by my installation, but I am unable to configure the SmartCard Reader Device.


Kernel Version 2.4.19
pcsc-lite version pcsc-lite-1.0.0

I am new to the SmartCard environment. Can somebody help me on this. I am also attaching the 'dmesg' output of my system. Urgent responses highly appreciated.
