About mountd


Right now, when I want to read the contents of a CD or a floppy I have
to mount the corresponding directory (/cdrom in my machine) manually. I
would like the system to configure the mount point automatically when I
try to read or write the contents of that directory.

I have scanned the file /etc/inetd.conf and I have found the following

#mountd/1       dgram   rpc/udp wait    root    /usr/sbin/tcpd

Next, I have looked for the daemon "/usr/sbin/rpc.mountd" but it is not
installed in my system:

cambados# ls -lsia /usr/sbin/rpc*
  41111   10 -rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root         9420 Feb 13  1999
  41116   14 -rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root        12988 Feb 13  1999
  41112    8 -rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root         7836 Feb 13  1999
  41115    6 -rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root         5996 Feb 13  1999

As in the case of "telnetd" I have looked for the package "mountd" in
the CDs of the distribution, but <<surprisingly>> there was not any
package with that name.

My questions are:
* What do I need?
* What about the daemon "mountd"?

My system is a Linux Debian 2.1 running on an AMD K6-III. If the
following information is useful for you, here it is:

cambados# dpkg --list *mount*
