(Frodo) Added README and COPYING file
        Now we will use a complete tar.gz file for distribution instead of
        a single patch
        Debian will include more docs

1 Introduction
2 ------------
3
4 The Neodio Card reader/writer is an USB storage device for reading
5 CompactFlash cards. It needs some special initialization code to work
6 properly. This kernel patch provides it. It should work with all 2.4
7 kernels, though it has been tested only with 2.4.19 and 2.4.20. It is
8 unneeded (but harmless to install) on 2.6 kernels.

10 The Neodio Card read/writer is also branded as Lead Data. The USB ids:
11 Vendor Id: 0aec
12 Product Id: 5010

14 Applying the patch
15 ------------------
16
17 There is one patch included in this package:
18 usb-neodio.diff For any 2.4 kernel
19
20 Now go to the kernel base directory (often called /usr/src/linux) and issue
21 the following command:
22 patch -p1 -E < PATCHFILE
23 If you want to see what will happen without applying the patch, try:
24 patch -p1 -E --dry-run < PATCHFILE
25 You may get a few messages about offsets; this is normal. But no fuzzy matches
26 should be reported, and certainly no rejects.
27
28 After this compile your kernel as usual.

31 Debian users
32 ------------
33
34 There is also a Debian version of this package. If you install it, and compile
35 your kernel "the Debian way", the right patch will be applied automatically.
36 Get it at the same place as this package (see Contact).
