My Soyo MB came with a front panel that has Smart Media card reader. Windows automatically detects it and assigns it a drive letter. Does anyone have any idea how to make the thing work?

Is your system stable enough you'd run your own life support on it? ---mine is. Soyo KT333 + AXP 1900+

if you have't compiled the kernel yourself then it (I mean the card) should be monted like a SCSI device (/dev/sda1 or /dev/sdb1.). Look in the kernel messages. If the CardReader is empty and you have the needed modules then ther should be something like:
Device not ready....
sda : READ CAPACITY failed
and somethings like that

you should start before this: hotplug
and should have in the kernel or as modules: usbcore, ohci, uhci or whatever is your usb device.

hope it helps :)
