Well, the distribution, by definition, is Debian. This _is_ debian-laptop. I
guess you're right about the autoloader. Do people really not use it?

It's not been an empty directory on any system I've installed. Right now it
has /mnt/cdrom, /mnt/cdrw and /mnt/floppy (I'll admit to having renamed the
CDs to something that made more sense to me). My Fedora core install
has /mnt/cdrom and /mnt/cdrom1 (auto discovered at install time). You could
use /mnt directly, but it makes sense to use a subdirectory.
