Help

When I try and partition my card in linux, I enter the [dmseg | tail]
and all i get back is a bunch of sdb prompts. The google site says
that I should get sdc and work from there. I know that the linux
operating system under VMWare is recognizing the card because it shows
up on my desktop in VMware, but yet won't let me access it through
terminal or whatever the problem might be. If someone could clear this
up I would appreciate it. Thanks

Run 'df' in a terminal on your linux VMWare machine after you see the
card on your desktop. It should post all your mounted filesystems with
size info. You can then unmount it (desktop right click it, unmount),
and run the command 'df' again. Compare the two outputs and see which
entry disappeared. That is the SD card device. For example my Hard
Drive is
'/dev/sda1 78148160 73783224 4364936 95% /media/disk'

Which means my hard disk device is /dev/sda and I am looking at
partition 1 (sda1), which in turn is mounted at /media/disk. Just
compare and look for the one that get's added when you plug it in. If
it happens to be /dev/sdb1 or something like that then your SD card
is /dev/sdb. Go from there with the guide.

Let us know how it goes!

Cheers,
Alberto

PS. I know there's probably a better way to do this but this is the
one I know...

I don't know about running it in VMWare, but I usually use 'fdisk -l' for locating devices - though I don't have an automounter running, so I'm looking for unmounted filesystems.
