Mounting a Compact Flash Card

How do you mount a Compact Flash card to be able to view the files on it? Thanks!

PS, How do you burn CD's in Slack 9.1?

Usually mkdir /mnt/flash
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/flash

You want k3b for cd burning, but you may need to add the ide-scsi which will change the cd drive from something like /dev/hdc to /dev/sr0

No that's wrong. You don't need ide-scsi for IDE device burning anymore. From the command line:

cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus (finds your burner address)

then burn:
cdrecord -v dev=ATAPI:0,1,0 speed=8 filename.iso OR
cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc speed=8 filename.iso

Also, K3B works fine without ide-scsi.
