Okay, with /dev/sda1  /media/camera  auto  rw,user,noauto  0  0 in fstab it 
works.  Yesterday I was having permissions trouble even with the "user" 
entry.  I added "auto" today, but I also deleted the icon in My Computer and 
started over with a new icon.  So I don't know why it works today, but didn't 

I'm now doing almost everything on Debian that I like to do on SuSE and feel 
confident I can make a total switch to Debian if something happens to SuSE.

About one or two days after you posted the line to put into apt to get KDE 
3.4, my regular source list downloaded brand new updates for KDE 3.3.  I 
wonder why Debian does this; continue to update 3.3, but then have a special 
source for using apt for 3.4.

Thanks for the help Jonathan and Bill.
