mounting cd-rom and floppy drives
how would i go about writing a real short script (~2 lines) to mount the cd-rom drive and floppy drive at system startup? each time i reboot i have to mount them myself.

Are you always using the same media in
both devices? :)

All you'd need to do is a little change
in /etc/fstab

Make the word noauto in the lines for
floppy and CD auto.

/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom iso9660 ro,exec,noauto,user 0 0

This is one of my entries in my /etc/fstab file... your mileage may differ. But if you see where it says "noauto" in the 4th column, you'd simply change yours to auto...
