There is a file called xorg.conf for your Xserver in ur /etc/X11/ directory where you can make modifications.

If you cant find it do this --->
#updatedb
#locate xorg.conf

*********Before you modify your xorg.conf file make a backup. *********
Modify the xorg.conf file using a utility called xorgconfig, instead of editing it manually.
To find the location of xorgconfig utility, do -->#whereis xorgconfig

On my system , xorgconfig is in --> /usr/X11R6/bin/xorgconfig

I am sorry, maybe Fc-2 still uses XFree86

In ur /etc/X11/ directory u should see a file something like XF86Config which is the configuration file for ur Xserver

If u can't find it do ---> #locate XF86

PLEASE BACKUP UR FILE AND THEN EDIT IT....

On my Redhat9 system ,I have some thing called -->redhat-config-xfree86
in /usr/bin directory which is used for configuring the Xserver.

I haven't used Fedora Core but I believe , the is a utility to configure your Xserver.

do this --->#locate xfree86
and see if anything shows up like [fedora-config-xfree86] .

and as far as your automount question is concerned, it has already been answere here on LQ. Search
the forum ,you should be able to find it.
