How to automount devices in Slack 11.00 (kernel 2.6)


Hello :-)
I know this is a hot issue and already covered somewhere in this forum. But please anyone give me a summary to what i should do if i want to make Slack 11.00 plug-n-mount like mepis?
The first step would obviously be "install and compile kernel 2.6" which i have done already.
The second step is to install "udev" (or use the existing udev in Slack 11.00?). If i have to install it (here i get lost) what version of udev i should use?
Thirdly install and configure HAL (i am absolutely lost at this time)....also i heard that if i use udev i no more use /etc/hotplug?

I need some help on this a would appreciate any answer, link, tutorial etc.

Thanks

I thing you just need to install them and have them run....I don't recall configuring anything.

On my Gentoo box(KDE) if I plug something in, it notifies me about it and I can choose to mount it.

I personally hate having it automount because(HAL) it usually mounts it the wrong place.

I dont use slack anymore(Gentoo!) but I recall from when I used it that I pretty much had to just install it.

Maybe some of the slackers can help!
;-)

Cheers!

Pretty cool.... it isn't as good for me since I have next to no internet bandwidth(dialup) but haven't had any problems yet.(using it for 2 months). If you are an advanced user you will like it, lots of control.(so does slack, in a different way) ;-)

I would compare it to slack on steroids.....it has everything that slack has(manual editing of config files+dependency package manager+USE flags.....really cool.
