IronKey on CrunchBang Linux 8.10 (Ubuntu Derived)

I've had good luck using IronKey high security USB flashdrives on Ubuntu 8.10. I'm now using an Openbox/xfce app derivative called crunchbang (well worth checking out).

I'm no longer able to use the IronKey. I've been unable to get help on this topic in the crunchbang forums , hopefully I'll have better luck here.

When I plug in my ironkey the pseudo CD drive mounts right up. Under the linux folder I try to run the "ironkey" unlocker app and it just will not run.
fhsm@Thinkpad:/media/IronKey/linux$ sudo ironkey
sudo: ironkey: command not found
I know the app is there and executable
fhsm@Thinkpad:/media/IronKey/linux$ ls -al | grep ironkey
-r-xr-xr-x 1 fhsm root 769356 2008-12-22 20:15 ironkey
I've tried dropping down to the real terminal (alt+clt+f1) and still nothing. I've tried copying the unlocker app onto the harddrive and running it from my home folder (required on Mac OS X sometimes) and still same "command not found". Obviously I've also tried the gksudo trick that is required to make it work on Ubuntu 8.10 to no avail.

Any suggestions on how to make it work or how to debug the problem would be much appreciated.

This current working dir is in my path, I guess this is something about removable drives?
