Re: OT: Floppy disk change detection - auto mounts?


  Have you tried the autofs package?  If your kernel has autofs support,
then it does exactly what you want: 
mounts and unmounts system files on demand (particularly floppy).
There is only one little problem:  It takes 5min to unmount the system as
a default.  However, by modifying the initialisation script
/etc/init.d/autofs you can decrease this time... See man autofs
for more info.
