First, please visit the home page for this list:

There, you will find a list of devices and links to information about
their drivers. The Imation Superdisk is supported by the combination
of the 'epat' protocol module and the 'pf' high-level driver from the
PARIDE suite.

PARIDE is standard in the 2.1 kernels, but at this time the only
support for 2.0 is a rather old beta version, paride-0.94, which
you can obtain from the web page above.

Build the paride, epat and pf modules, load them, create the device
file for pf0 and do

        mount /dev/pf0 /mnt/superdisk

or whatever ...

NB: the pf driver does not support partitions, do not try to use
fdisk on it. You can build an ext2 fs on one however:

        mke2fs /dev/pf0
