Re: Dummies guide to mounting SD cards

Thanks I'll give it another go last time I think I just got very frustrated.
NetBSD does have the advantage of being perfect on the Asus in terms of the amount of left over space disk space after installation I just need to try some alternative window managers twm while being very light weight does feel a little primitive these days.

I have similar one (not with me atm, not sure the exact model), which runs i386 -current full time. I find it too slow to do compilations on it, so I use a VM on a fast XenServer to d my builds, which occasionally include building live image for i386. I then just write the resulting image to an sd card and boot the Eee from it (I still haven't figured out how to extend the partition size to use the entire sd card, the build scritps have predefined sizes). 

As far as the other query, the usual sequence is:

 - insert the media (USB stick or SD card)
 - check the dmesg
 - run disklabel on the last seen disk type device (sd/ld/whatever device)
 - mount the necessary partition

I'm just about to reinstall on an aging Asus eee 701 and I never quite managed to get the SD card to work (or any other usb media for that matter).
Basically I'm looking for a dummies guide to mounting / formatting SD cards so I can use it as storage for building from source (the poor eee only has 4GB internal drive). Does anyone have one?
