 Using a Compact Flash Card Reader in Linux

Machineofthemonth talks about how to use a Compact Flash Card Reader under Linux.

"There's also an IDE-based piece of hardware (non-usb, in particular) that can exists. It comes in I think a Compact Flash version and also a universal version (that reads multiple types of cards, like the UnoMas). The interesting thing about this piece of hardware is that it's a plug and play device, apparently. No fooling with the Linux kernel, no adding usb support or anything. You probably wouldn't even need a 2.4 series kernel either. It would be treated just like a standard hard drive, nothing more, nothing less. A standard IDE device."
