There is an automount but there not not any auto'un'mount of which I
am aware.  Which means you can put removable media in and it will
automatically mount.  But then how do you eject the media?  You would
need to wait for the mount to time out.  Very inconvenient.  Much more
so than just mounting and unmounting as needed.

  apt-get install autofs

  editor /etc/auto.master /etc/auto.misc

  ls /var/autofs/misc/cd
  ls /var/autofs/misc/floppy
