Automounting a removable drive


I use a pen drive occassionally and for some reason Mandrake started to automount this device on startup. I'd rather be able to just do it manually whenever i need it. Is there a way to tell it to not automount this?

* Edit *
I've looked around in the drakeconfig and it has lots of options for configuring where you want you dvd, cd burner, etc., mounted, but nothing about disabling this from automatically mounting. I unmount the device after i log in with "umount /mnt/removable" command, but it comes right back up after a reboot and places a symlink ( i think that's what it's called) on my desktop.
