Angry USB Simple CF/SM Memory reader

Can anyone give me a simple explanation on how to install/configure a USB CF/SM reader. I'm running RH 8.0 and I believe the OS recognizes the device because when I connect it and I run lsmod, I see the following module entries,

scsi_mod storage used by usb-storage
usbcore used by usb-storage hid sub-uhci

That all goes away when I disconnect my reader. I'm fairly confident I need to mount the file system somehow before I can see it but that is where I'm lost.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can either scroll through dmesg or open up a terminal before you plug in the device and type:
tail -f /var/log/messages

Then plug in your reader, with the card inserted. It should pop up the device name that it takes, maybe something like:

If you aren't sure, post the output here so someone can decipher it for you.

Also, a search in the hardware section of the site might yield TONS of results on this

1 more thing...
