Question Auto-mounting

Is there any way to make drives (CD-ROM Drives, Floppy Drives, etc) automatically mount and unmount when you do and don't need them.

BTW here's fstab file from one of my slackware machines:

/dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hda5 /usr reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0

There is, there are really 2 options for this. Automount, or Supermount.



Automount sounds more like what you are looking for maybe?
