Okay, this screen shot is just plain teasing.

Would you like to explain to the masses (or maybe just me) how you got
SD/MMC support working in Fedora.

I notice that 'modprobe mmc_block' now installs the modules needed, but
beyond this it's not doing anything.

Doesn't notice the insertion of cards into the reader (which lspci
reports as a):

03:01.2 Class 0805: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C822 SD/SDIO/MMC/MS/MSPro Host Adapter (rev 17)

Nothing shows up in /dev

Nothing mounts, that's for certain.

This isn't the plug N play I'm getting used to in Fedora, so what do I
need to do.  It would be great to have support for SD/MMC in FC5 and it
certainly looks like we're close.
