Only for be clear :when I'm talking about the SD/CF I'm talking when they are inside the Zaurus...
So I connect the Zaurus to my PC (GNU/Linux) and I see or the CF or the SD (in relation to the usbconfig settings)
Without any knowledge of module storage_fd on Zaurus, I can only descript my experience, that is...
If my SD/CF with ext2 filesystem have directoris with permissions for all the user I can see on my PC connected via USB with the Zaurus... With other type of permissions I can't see...

I'm a little confused about what you say here - I can't think of any reason why the card permissions should stop the card from being used as a mass-storage device, mainly because the card is not mounted when it's used as a mass-storage device (so changes to the mount points make no sense). In addition you have to be root to insmod the storage_fd module and therefore it doesn't really matter what any permissions are.
On the machine on which you're mounting the card (via usb) I can see that you might have issues accessing files if they are owned by root (for example), however the mounting is also performed by root so again I fail to see a problem.
Perhaps I've mis-understood what you're trying to do.
