Accessing an SD card on the SheevaPlug

Not something I knew beforehand.
USB devices are either auto detected or can be accessed as regular SCSI Disk devices (/dev/sda# - by the way, the SheevaPlug has no problem powering a 7200 rpm 2.5" HDD [UPDATE: until you try it for a few days, and its PSU blows up), but not SD Cards.

The device name to use then is: /dev/mmcblk0 for the raw device and /dev/mmcblk0p1 for the first partition.
