Treat CF card like a floppy

NP man. I just get irritated sometimes when people think KDE can do
everything. There are alot better ways to do things but may take time
research/read. Fortunately, there are some old school linux people using
"user freindly" kde now and lurk on this mailing list.
Good luck, im sure you will get it working within a day after reading the docs
Word of advise that is offtopic, SAMBA is also done in almost exactly like
this fashion but more involved in /etc/fstab to give permissions to the
proper users besides root access to a remotely mounted SMB share. I find
newer users immediately look to get SMB working first off the bat.
