It's is interesing how yours and some other work and some don't work
with SD card reader.

I bought mine over six months ago and has SD card for similar time so
I thought that it could be a hardware error on my part but after I
talked with a friend of mine who bought his eee and 8BG sd card few
weeks ago and has issues with installing Fedora 10 on it (same issues
as described before) I concluded that it probably isn't a hardware bug
on my eee.

That friend has since installed Ubuntu (netbook remix edition) on SD
card and it is working for him. Ununtu-Fedora 1:0 :(

I'm not sure which kernel is ubuntu running and if there are some
custom kernel partches... but if you are interested I can look into
