re: automount and cdrom and floppy

Hello All:

I'd like to install a lt winmodem on RH 7.3, and am using a winbox to connect to get info on the what's and how's.
I'd like to know if there's a way to automount my floppy drive and my cdrom drive, so that I don't have to mount them every time I swap hdd's to get info. Is there a way to do this? Is there a prescribed or advised way to mount / automount?

Any relevant help greatly appreciated. I keep bumping into stuff and the lumps are beginning to hurt.
