Thanks. Though I suppose I need to dig a bit deeper (or perhaps you
know), and figure out exactly what is going on behind the scenes. It
is my understanding that the new HAL/D-Bus setup will not automatically
update /etc/fstab as devices are hotplugged/inserted.

If indeed this is the case, how will KDE know where to mount these
devices when it recognizes that one has been inserted?
