Texas Instruments 5-in1 card reader


hello....
i am running Ubuntu gusty kernel 2.6.22-14-generic on a toshiba satellite p-105. I am having a little trouble getting my card reader to work, i only use MS pro and when i put it in the light flashes but it wont auto mount and i dont know how to mount it manually (didnt really try). I looked at BerliOS but as far as i can see my kernel is not supported. I also have read the Fiesty had the TI firmware module built into the kernel but gusty does not (as far as i can see). So does anyone have any idea on how to get this to work? thanks in advance for the help!

Just see if anything is already configured try this.
Reboot the machine.
Once up and logged in open a terminal console.
plugin your card
wait 15 secs
type this command ' dmesg '

Does the last ten or so lines show anything like sg or sd device?
