This is the Sprint Instinct, right?  The phone does connect as a disk on a Mac 
with no drivers but that only started working after an update to the phone 
firmware so be sure you are up to date. If you aren't on Sprint in the US, it 
might be different, though.  I'll try it with a Centos box later today. But I 
still recommend a usb adapter for the memory card if you are moving any media 
files, especially video - it's faster even if you count the time popping the 
card in and out.
