This has to be covered in the docs somewhere, but my searches there
and on questions, hackers, and fs turned up zip.

Installed an old pcmcia card device,
plugged in a flashcard reader w/card.

kernel contains
   device ata
   device card
   device pcic0
rc.conf contains

I see
   pccard: card inserted, slot 1
   ...pccardd[52]: Card "SunDisk"("SDP") [5/3 0.6] [[none]]
   matched "SunDisk" ("/.*/") [(null)] [(null)]
   ata1 at port 0x240-0x247,0x24e irq 10 slot 1 on pccard1
   ...pccardd[52]: ata1: SunDisk (/.*/) inserted.

So far, so good...

Now, I thought one should be able to read these as a file system.

If so, to what device does one mount?  I tried the ata device,
but get the message "Block device required"; and there are no other
ata entries in /dev.  Do I need to manually create these?

If not, what's the procedure for reading?
