I just created directories "media/usb0"
etc and pointed to them in fstab. Works fine.

udev, hal, pmount
Hello. I'm using the combination of hal, udev, and
pmount on my laptop
so that removable devices (usb sticks, an audio player, a camera) will
be automatically detected and mounted when inserted.
All is working well, and I'm pleased with the improvement,
is one way in which I'd like things to work a bit better. At present
the devices are mounted in the /media directory, and the name used for
the mountpoint is the raw kernel device-name: /media/sda1 /media/sdb1
and so on.
That's fine, but I have written udev rules which create
/dev/iaudio for the audio player, and to /dev/micro for the Sandisk
and so on, and it would be nice if those device-names could be used as
the mountpoints: /media/iaudio /media/micro and so on. It doesn't seem
like it should be so hard to pass that information to the pmount
command, but I haven't so far found a way to do it.
Does anyone know how to do this?
I know that Gnome and KDE both have graphical utilities
this kind of thing, but I don't (want to) use either of those (I use
fluxbox as my window-manager).
Thanks very much for any hints or pointers,
