Description of problem:
While hal perfectly mounts my ext3 partitions and external USB drives,
it doesn't want to mount my vfat partition. If I put this line:
/dev/hda2 /media/share vfat
pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
in my fstab then I can mount it nicely. But after the next reboot the
line is removed. This partiton used to be hidden, but I've fixed that
now. Could that be a factor? If I do an lshal I see this for the vfat
volume.mount_point = '' (string)
volume.policy.desired_mount_point = 'idedisk' (string)
volume.policy.mount_filesystem = 'vfat' (string)
volume.policy.should_mount = true (bool)
Also, does hal pull the volume label for vfat partitions like it does
for ext3 partitions? When I add the line referenced above and I can
mount the partition it still doesn't use the volume label in the name.

Sorry, this is intentional, see this message
