    Compact Flash Card Reader

    I am trying to get my San Disk Image Mate Compact Flash card reader to work. I know it is dev/sda. I added that to fstab (I hope I got it right...below). But, when I try to mount it, it says: Called mount point dev/sda...mount point media/reader does not exist. I tried adding a block device called reader to dev but still no luck...thanks.

    /dev/hdb2/reiserfsdefaults 1 2
    /dev/cdrecorder/media/cdrecorderautoro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
    /dev/cdrom/media/cdromautoro,noauto,user,exec 0 0

    sda is only a device, is there also a partition number (eg sda1)??

    I went back into /dev and found sda1, I edited fstab to that, but still cant find the mount point. The part in fstab that says /media/reader... I made that up, dont know if it is correct or not... ;D
