This is a bit tangential, but do you know about the "pmount-hal"
command? It basically uses HAL to work out a name for the mount point
(eg. /media/My USB Drive instead of /media/usb0), and automatically
works out some other mount flags for you. Keep in mind I use Squeeze,
not Lenny, so if it's not there, that's why.
