What I don't like is that I have to "su" to write to the stick and to unmount it again, so this automounting is pretty useless. I've tried to decipher the files under /etc/udev to find the rule that actually mounts stuff, but grepping for "mount" just shows me some unmounting detail in a file called "hal.rules".
