The included card reader appears to only work if the cards are inserted before the computer is booted up.  If another user has information to resolve this issue, please reply.  The specs of the reader are:

Manufacturer: FITILINK
Model: CRDL02-03
DP/N: 082CF5
Power: USB(5V/500mA)

Steps to install the drivers:

1) Plug in the wired network connection before turning on the device (as of the 2017.04.07.0 version, this is a requirement for wired networking)

2) Turn on the computer and immediately press the F12 key multiple times to display the boot device list

3a) Insert the 32bit or 64bit version of the XiniX boot media into the optical drive and select the corresponding option prefixed with "CD/DVD:"
3b) Attach the 32bit or 64bit version of the XiniX boot media into a USB port and select the corresponding option prefixed with "USB:"; press F8 multiple times to display the "XiniX Boot Options" menu

4) Select "Start XiniX" from the 'XiniX Boot Options" menu

5) In the "Welcome" wizard run through the setup to create a DATA partition and optionally install and desired software

6) When you reach the desktop, a balloon should appear referencing the installation of the more powerful graphical system - click the "Install" button

NOTE: if you miss this step, go into "Access > Local > Software > System" and after it has populated (it will take a minute or two), click the toggle icon and select the "Install" option for the "xorg" entry

7) Go into "Access > Device > Drivers" (using 'now has zen' as password), again waiting a minute or two for population, then the click the toggle icon and select the "Install" option for the "Dell_Inspiron_580" entry

8) Now you can optionally perform step 7 again with the "xf86_video_intel" entry or simply reboot the device twice to have the proper video driver installed
