    You have to compile kernel with usb and mass storage support.

    Damn, sorry, I didn't notice you're running knoppix... You won't be able to recompile kernel :(

    You shoud be able to mount you cam with:

    Code:
    mount -t vfat /device /mount/point
    What camera you want to use?

    The most of usb-cards/cameras could be mounted as SCSI-devices.
    FAT32 is usually used by cameras.

    So
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/cam
    and try this:

    Code:
    mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/cam
    If you have some other SCSI-devices it will not be sda, but maybe sdb, sbc, etc (see it in /dev/fdisk -l output)

    For the record, once you've mounted the device, you can go into the /mnt/cam directory and see everything there.

    The Linux filesystem is like a tree; to add new things to the tree, we mount devices into specified directories. This makes that directory point into this device.

    So you will be mounting your camera to the /mnt/cam directory.
