That's because SmartMedia cards are IDE devices.  I'll clarify this in
the HOWTO.

Don't worry about it.  You should just be able to mount /dev/hde, with
a command like:

    mount -t msdos /dev/hde /mnt

As for why you have trouble copying the files to your hard disk even
under Windows, I'm afraid I don't have any good ideas about that.
There is no such thing as an end-of-file mark in a Linux file, as far
as I know.  It isn't really a Linux PCMCIA issue.
