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.
