There is a faq on the edits needed to add a new type of CF card, but I haven't found one for SD cards and am not having much luck trying to do something similar with the new 2GB Sandisk SD card. Mine is the regular, not the Ultra, since I understand the Z can't use the extra speed. I can mount it on my C1000 (running pdaxrom RC10) as /dev/sda1 using a USB reader. When I try to mount it as /dev/mmcda1 in the sd slot I get the unhelpfully vague message:
"wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/mmcda1 or too many mounted file systems (could this be the IDE device where you in fact use ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)"
Specifying vfat and trying sda instead didn't help. Is there a file that needs a new entry for this card, like for a new CF card? How do I get the information to enter there?
My plan is to put Debian onto the 2GB sd card, as running it on a 1 GB card now doesn't quite let me do what I want. I can then add a 2GB or 4GB cf card and network though a USB bluetooth dongle to my cell phone and desktop, hopefully ending up with something closer to real laptop capability and longer battery life using the C1000 rather than the more expensive models with WiFi and microdrives. Hopefully, the major remaining problem after that is all set up will be the cell phone bill.
