Sad help - Linux desktop connect to Samsung Captivate via USB


I am a new Android user, who just purchased a Samsung Captivate a few days ago. .... My desktop runs Linux (Gentoo, specifically).

I am trying to connect my phone via USB to transfer pictures, music, and video. However, the phone is not recognized (no auto-mount options), regardless if I choose Kries, Media, Storage, PC Internet, or USB Debugging. The phone says there is a connection, but my computer seems completely unaware of it. Nothing every happens. ... BTW, I don't have this problem, if I plug in my iPod or a generic USB device.

I have downloaded and installed the Adroid SDK, but I don't know what to do with it, or if that is even relevant.

Any suggestions? Google is not helping me, because everybody else is having trouble with Windows, not Linux.
