What programs are kicking into action when plugging in the USB flash drive

Hello friends,
I have FC7.
When I insert a USB flash drive, the same is recognised and automatically mounted on /media/usbdisk with the current user as the owner. I was a bit curious as to which of the programs are kicking into action when the flash drive is plugged in. What is the sequence of events.

After inserting the flashdrive, type 'dmesg' at the command prompt and you should see some logging of the things going on "under the hood".

Usually HAL, DBus and your DE sorts out automounted devices.
