I have the exact same setup.

Another problem is removing/inserting the flash card: accessing /dev/pda after
changing the card just crashes my machine.
Oh, and it also seems to lose whatever config it got from the Delkin DOS setup
if I rmmod pd and try to modprobe pd again.
I guess I'll have to start looking for a SCSI interface such as the MicroTech
IDPA (see http://www.microtechint.com/qs-dpai.html).
