got my camera working

I'm running suse 8.1. My camera (Olympus D-380) wasn't supported by gphoto. I used dmesg and found out that my camera was detected as /dev/sda1. I then issued the following command as root:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt

Now I can get pictures off of my digital camera. Yay.

Thanks for the tip! The same command works great with my Olympus D-520 Zoom.
