1.2. Intent

This HOWTO is intended for the new Linux user who already has a camera with Universal Serial Bus (USB) mass storage capabilities or wants to buy one. If you were like me, someone gave you one for your birthday, and you just could not take it back without hurting some feelings. So, you get into your Linux documentation and make it work. There is nothing we can't do, and there are no dumb questions, only information we don't have yet.
