Thanks. What made it harder is that it slides in the opposite direction to that which the card would slide to remove it. Mine didn't have the open-close directions marked. The drawing clsdclsd linked clued me into that.
Thanks both of you. Mine is only a 2GB btw. I am more interested in a backup image than more storage, but I may get a bigger card, and keep the whole 2GB card as a backup.
