hi -

	i'm having a bit'o trouble trying to mount the memory stick
	drive that is part of my CRX175C/M sony cdrom. the
	/var/log/messages details are as follows:

...
Jan  2 16:19:29 xphylz kernel: Linux version 2.4.18 (root at xphylz) (gcc 
version 2.95.4
  (Debian prerelease)) #2 Fri Apr 12 11:55:27 PDT 2002
...
Jan  2 16:19:29 xphylz kernel:     ide1: BM-DMA at 0xa808-0xa80f, BIOS 
settings: hdc:
DMA, hdd:DMA
...
Jan  2 16:19:29 xphylz kernel: hdc: SONY CD-RW CRX175A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM 
drive
Jan  2 16:19:29 xphylz kernel: hdd: SONY MEMORYSTICK CRX175M, ATAPI 
cdrom or floppy?,
  assuming FLOPPY drive
...
Jan  2 16:53:22 xphylz kernel: hdd: driver not present
...

	any ideas? any/all suggestions welcomed although i do not,
	as of this time, mount the memory stick via a usb device
	which looks to be the trend according to liberal google
	searches on the topic.

	much appreciated,

- james
