/cdrom & /cdrom0
I just installed testing from the beta 4 netinstall cd, on three machines and it is by far the best installation I have done, the hardware recognition made the whole thing a piece of cake.
I am curious about one thing though. The install creates two directories as mount points /floppy, /cdrom and cdrom0. Now I have read the FHS and I know that this kind of media should be now mounted in /media/floppy and /media/cdrom, and I see that Testing does create these mount points.
Anyway I deleted what I took to be the surplus /floppy, /cdrom and /cdrom0 and removed references to them from the /etc/fstab.
I rebooted the machine and was a little surprised to see that although /floppy stayed gone, /cdrom and /cdrom0 had both returned.
Why are they there? Why do they keep coming back after I zap them
