Install the MTools and hope that the gmc (Gnome Midnight Commander)
has compilöed in support for it. The Midnight Commander hat it
compiled in at some time, but not anymore.
Maybe you have to recompile with some option enabled.
For CD-roms, you would need the automounter and if you did it for
CDroms, you can do that for flopies as well instead of using mtools.
May the Source be with you.
