Unable to insert a certificate in a pcsc SmarCard


I've a Fujitsu Siemens SmartCard Keyboard USB. I'm trying to insert a personal certificate into a clean card.
I've installed pcscd and pcsc-tools.
How can I install a certificate and use it in the machine (firefox, konqueror,....)?

I try to use gscriptor. When try to connect I receive an error:
"Can not connect to the reader named 'Fujitsu Siemens SmartCard Keyboard USB 2A 00 00': Card is unpowered'

The OS is Kubuntu 8.04


What I can see is:
