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.

I'm trying to get my Lexar usb card reader (model #gs-ufd-20sa-tp) to work on my laptop (Asus M50VM) running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
When I connect the reader (with a pcmcia flash card in it), dmesg says this:
[115625.181613] usb 7-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
[115625.334337] usb 7-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
but it doesn't seem to do anything else. It's an older device, and I've tested it on an older laptop running XP and it works.

That depends on what other disks you have. Open a konsole, go into the /dev directory, do an 'ls -l sd*' without the quotes, and see what it lists. Your HD will probably be sda and you should see a sda1 for the first partition, and one for each other partition. If you have one HD, then look for a sdb and sdb1.
On my system I have two HD's so the memory card becomes sdc.
