Kodak EasyShare v803 digital camera -- drivers or drive detection?

I'm running Mandriva Free 2006, 2.6.12 kernel, on a bespoke computer not connected to the internet and it cannot be connected to the internet due to sensative data.

I also have a Kodak EasyShare v803 digital camera, and I cannot get the computer to detect the camera. Neither Google nor Kodak reveal drivers or programs so that I can offload some pictures from the camera to my hard drive (I am NOT talking about manipulation of the photos.).

The HCL list does not show the V803 model. Does anyone have any experience with this camera and linux-running computers? Any suggestions as to how I can access the photos on the camera through my linux box?

My EasyShare (not v803) can be accessed as PTP2, it does not mount as generic USB volume. I'd say if you cannot add software then forget it.

Running a KDE session, I was able to connect to the camera using flphoto v1.2, detecting the camera as a USB PTP Class camera.
