pcmcia compact flash recognized, but not mounted

I spent time googling, but was unable to find an answer to this ...
I have Compact Flash + a PCMCIA adapter. Shows up fine on a Win32
laptop as a FAT volume.
I am running a fresh/clean install of Fedora 10 on a Dell Latitude D600.
When I insert the adapter with compact flash into the card slot the
hardware is recognized. I see the following in /var/log/messages:
Jan 5 14:57:59 d600 kernel: pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 0
Jan 5 14:57:59 d600 kernel: pcmcia: registering new device pcmcia0.0
The device correctly appears as /sys/bus/pcmcia/devices/0.0 with
(apparently correct) subdirectory tree.
Yet, the volume does not mount .... and I cannot find any mount points.
It actually isn't important to me that it automount ... but I haven't
figured out how to mount it by hand.
fwiw, USB devices *do* automount properly on this system.
Any help would be appreciated.
