I plan to leave the card reader plugged in all the time, and I don't
(currently) plan to use any other usb storage devices.  I'll probably
just edit the fstab for now, but I know as soon as I do that, I'll
find 3 other usb storage devices my kids want to use.

I'm using GNOME.  I'll try it in KDE an see if it works better.  I
guess with FC3+, the first thing to try is 'setenforce off', and in
SuSE try it in KDE.
