Ok, I have an Amiga 2000 here up and running, and I know that it's possible to interface an SD cardreader to the Ami somehow. Anyone know the cheapest and easiest way possible? Anyone doing this?

This might not be any use, as I never touched an Amiga 2000.
But I do use 'Compact Flash' Cards on my Amiga 600, via a CF PCMCIA Adapter and it works sweet. It comes with some drivers and easy to do.
Again, not exactly what you were asking about (actual nothing like it :) ) but thought it might be useful.

The 600 and the 1200 come with a PCMCIA slot and it's really easy to find a PC card with the relevant drivers. You can also connect a CF drive internally on the 1200 on it's IDE port (instead of a regular HD).
For the 2000 you should look for a card with an IDE connector like this one

and then any CF card reader, there plenty on ebay, would do the trick.
