Make sure first your CF is formatted with FAT16 ( not NTFS ) for which you'll need a help from your Windows computers.
then in ternminal windows type this:

mkdir /mnt/uba1                                            ( or mkdir  /mnt/CFlash )
mount -t vfat /dev/uba1 /mnt/uba1               ( on mount -t vfat  /dev/uba1  /mnt/Cflash  )

( assuming that your CF card is detected as device uba1. In  case your DamnSmallLinux detects USB compact flash card reader as a SCSI device you have to substitute uba1 with sda1 )

Often useful to probe the module :) DSL doesn't do it automatically when you plug the device in.

sudo modprobe usb-storage

Then mount as described above.
mkdir /tmp/card
mount /dev/sda1 /tmp/card
or whatever...
