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.

If the camera can use a USB connection then it's actually quite simple. Just plug it in and mount the camera as a USB masss storage device.
A crude way to do this is to plug the camera in vis the USB, power the camera up and check the logs. Try 'tail -50 /var/log/messages' and look for USB mass storage stuff - usually /dev/sda1 or /dev/sdb1, etc).
Then just mount it - 'mount /dev/sda1 /mnt' (crude but effective)
I've tried three cameras this month and they all worked brilliantly. (2 Fuji's and a Sony - I stuck with the Sony)
I am still having on luck with this camera .. If anyone can help me out it would be great my card is almost full and I need it up load it... I plug it in to the usb port and it sees the camera but that is all I can do
You can forget about all your gphoto and jphoto questions cause I have the cure to your problem. In my struggle to get my own Kodak DX3700 to work (the same family of cameras as the 3600) I came across a little program called MMPTP. After installing I followed their simple instructions and had the camera working within 2 min. It can be found at http://www.michaelminn.com/linux/mmptp/README.html
Note: on the site it says "Initial release that compiles under Red Hat 7.2 and supports only the Kodak DX3500 camera." That is a bunch of BS. It works with all the Kodak DX series cameras not just the DX3500 and runs on Slackware just fine.

Are you untaring it, cding into the directory and then typeing "make install"? You dont need to compile it. Make sure you are root to install. Also make sure to add the line "alias char-major-181 mmptp" at the bottom of the "/etc/modules.conf" file. I hope that helps. Then reboot and it should be all set up.

1 more thing...You have to do "modprobe usb-uhci" to have your usb drive working before you can run MMPTP. I'm not sure if suse does this automaticly, I think it probably does. If not you can place that command in the "/etc/rc.d/rc.modules" file and it should load on boot. Another reason it might not work is if you dont have basic usb support compiled into your kernel. In that case you would have to recompile, but seeing as how you use suse I highly doubt that you are without usb support in your kernel.
You're typeing 'makefile'? You need to be typeing "make install". Other then that I wish I could tell you something positive about the solution to your problem but the truth is I dont know the answer. Sorry.
