I don't really know much about USB, but I have a pcmcia->CF adapter that I
use in my laptop that works great under linux.  The CF ends up looking like
an ide drive.  After appropriate configuration, it even mounts automatically
when I stick it in the pcmcia slot.  I think it's a neater solution than
usb because it means no extra wires, and no reader.
