Preventing Automount for USB Devices on Ubuntu

How do you I prevent automounting for usb devices? Every time I plug in my usb stick device, it gets mounted as /media/usbdisk, /media/sdb1. However, I want it to only manually mount. Any thoughts? Here's my fstab. I tried doing things setting a mount point and using a "noauto" option, but it didn't work.

Tested lines to /etc/fstab
/dev/sdb1 /media/udb1 ext3 rw,noauto 0 0
/dev/usbdisk /media/usbdisk ext3 rw,noauto 0 0

Here's the original fstab

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda4 / ext3 noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sda2 /boot ext2 noatime 0 2
/dev/sda3 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0

Try to uninstall the usbmount-package:

sudo apt-get remove usbmount
Note: The "noauto"-option of 'mount' only indicates that this device will not be moumted when using the '-a'-option. See "man mount" for further details about this.

Uh, any help on just disabling the automount. I don't really want to permanently remove the automount feature.
