I am sure that the main problem is that my camera is not being recognised
by the usb mass storage module.
The relevant bit from /var/log/messages after I did 'insmod usb-storage':
Sep 10 19:05:06 nigels_box kernel: Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
Sep 10 19:05:06 nigels_box kernel: usb.c: registered new driver
Sep 10 19:05:06 nigels_box kernel: USB Mass Storage support registered.
Sep 10 19:05:21 nigels_box kernel: hub.c: USB new device connect on
bus2/1, assigned device number 3
Sep 10 19:05:21 nigels_box kernel: usb.c: USB device 3 (vend/prod
0x919/0x100) is not claimed by any active driver.
Sep 10 19:05:22 nigels_box /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: ... no modules for USB
Needless to say I couldn't mount the camera :-(
Oh well I suppose I shall just have to continue using that other OS for my
camera :-( :-(
