It's quite possible that this camera is PTP only, so using programs
like gphoto2, gtkam or digikam are a very easy way to use them - and
gphoto2 can also be used to automate things.

The Kodak DC280 really looks ancient (that's nothing bad per se), in
fact, I thought I looked at my Kodak DC210 because the rear panel
nearly looks the same; this one IS ancient because it doesn't even
have USB - it's serial connected.

I think your camera has a CF card you can eject? In this case, you
can, if available, use an USB card reader to go the regular mount
way. So if you wish to use a mount-based way of accessing files,
maybe using the pure card is a way to go.
