Steps 4 and 6 under section "Copying an image to the SD Card in Linux (command line)" assume that the OS will automount the USB SDCard reader. This is not the case with the current release of Debian that's listed on the RPi downloads page. (debian6-19-04-2012) Using the df command with this release does not provide the user with the needed information. I do not (yet) know enough about Linux to provide easy, more reliable instructions. I was able to determine the correct device name by using "tail -f /var/log/messages" and watching for any mention of "sda" or similar while plugging/unplugging the USB SDCard reader. --GG Crew 20:33, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
