I usually put the RS-MMC card to a RS-MMC reader and connect the
RS-MMC reader to my Linux laptop with USB. It automatically mounts to 
the "Places" -menu in Gnome (I am using Ubuntu Dapper and Gnome 2.13.2
it works similarly also in older versions, it worked fine already on
Hoary and Breezy).
In KDE it may be different and you might end up hand-mounting it from
(I have done that with some past Suse version, I have used versions 9.0,
9.1, 9.2, 9.3 so far
and I am going to install soon the 10.0). However, with a quite up to
date Linux you
should not have any problems with mounting. I don't mount the 770
directly (so that the
card would be inside the device) because my 770 is usually in
usb-host-mode because I use
to connect a USB-network adapter to the USB of 770 (there is obviously a
USB hub in between a USB gender changer adapter).

If you don't have a card reader, I think it would be a good investment
to do.
They are failly inexpensive and support a wide variety of cards, like
Compact flash etc.
