Question automagically mount Magneto-Optical Drive?

I am running FC2, and have managed to get my hands on a Fujitsu M2512A Magneto-Optical drive, and a handful of disks. The device is detected by FC2 and works correctly, as I have been able to fdisk, format and mount a disk successfully.

I'm wondering if it is possible to set this drive to automagically mount the partition when a disk is entered, much like a CD-ROM drive, complete with an icon on the desktop. Is this possible?

I previously made an entry in /etc/fstab only to find it removed upon a reboot. I presume that kudzu is to blame.

I've been reading about automount (autofs), but I am unsure if this is what I should be using.

Any ideas?
