Description of problem:
i've an usb pendrive, and works perfectly on redhat 8.0
however i've to manually mount and umount the device
(/dev/sda1) and i find this quite annoying.
i know that nautilus can autodetect when a cdrom is inserted,
and automatically opens a window showing the contents.
is it possible to enhance nautilus so that works in this
way but for usb devices?
also you should add an entry in the nautilus popup menu
"disks". since it contains floppy and cdroms it should also
contain a link to a usb device.

Can you post the output of 'kudzu -p -b usb'?

In Fedora Core 3 and later, handling of mounting of devices is done via the
'hal' component. As such, changes to updfstab are very unlikely to be made in
the future (in fact, it is no longer shipped in the kudzu tarball.)
