Hmm, I never realized that the kernel had the ability to read hfs
volumes - it seems to me that the hfsutils and hfsplus documentation
said that it didn't.  Was the hfs line in my /proc/filesystems file
added by the hfsutils package?  I added the line 

/dev/sda     /mnt/zip     hfs     user,noauto     0     0

to my fstab and it seems to mount fine now. I used the same options,
dump, and pass entries that were on my floppy drive line - is that
acceptable and should it work alright?  It looks like it works well,
but I haven't ever changed the fstab before.

Another question, is there any way to mount an audio cd so that it can
be played by a media player (it seems this is the way xmms would like
to handle things)?  Is an audio cd iso9660, because when I try mounting
it as an iso9660 volume, I get a response saying that that I have the
wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,or too many
mounted file systems.
