Okay, I have tested this and seems to be working.

I have used a plain USB flash key (fat32 formatted), edited "/etc/fstab" 
and added:

UUID=12345-6789	/mnt	auto	defaults,noauto	0	0

And after reboot, neither nautilus nor "mount" command showed up the 
volume as mounted nor even as present.

Once I run "mount -U 12345-6789" the USB key is available under /mnt, as 
instructed, but still not present under nautilus.

Hoang, maybe you can review this.
