fstab question

My etc/fstab file has kudzu (or something like that) in the options for my cdrom, cdrw, zip and floppy.

What is this for? All references I've seen for fstab modification do not mention this.

Kudzu is a program that detects hardware at boot (when it's added or removed).
I may be wrong, but kudzu option in fstab means (for me) that kudzu decides if a drive is present or not and then it's mounted or not.

Kudzu is redhat's hardware autodetection system.
