Have you tried autofs or supermount? http://supermount-ng.sourceforge.net/
AFAIK supermount isn't included in debian kernels, so you need to patch it or use autofs.

I don't use automounting as I prefer the manual way, but I don't see why the button wouldn't work with supermount. Take that with a grain of salt as I haven't tried it.
For the kernel, have a look at the sticky about compiling, add to it the problem it or start a new thread about it.

I've made a little search...

supermount is in official Debain as patch for kernel-2.4

Is there something for 2.6??

I can't press a key on CD eject the disk... I must use "eject" menu in Gnome...

Is there any way to setup supermount to work correctly???

You can find some patches here: http://www.compunauta.com/forums/lin...rmount_en.html
I don't know who maintains it now since Kolivas quit doing it. A google should find the maintainer.
