Problems with automount?

Hate to ask questions unless I'm really stuck. What can I say
really stuck again.
Trying to automount my cdrom and a USB Key but it
does not seem to work. One thing that I should say to start is that
my LFS system was instlalled using LFS6.3 and I'm now working using
BLFS6.2 which was the latest one when I downloaded things.
My auto.master file is as specified in the BLFS Chapter 3:
> # Begin /etc/auto.master
> /media /etc/auto.misc
> # End /etc/auto.master
I should perhaps say that I couldn'd load the BLFS Automount wiki
page mentioned in the book. That link seems to be empty and I can't
find any other relevant info.
I've changed the cd line in /etc/auto.misc as my cd's device file
is /dev/cdrom1 and added a line for a USB Key:
> #cd -fstype=iso9660,ro,nosuid,nodev :/dev/cdrom1
> cdrom -fstype=iso9660 :/dev/cdrom1
> mds_disk -fstype=vfat :/dev/mds_disk
I commented out the line with nosuid and nodev as I decided I'd try
with limited options. Both the above commands, well the equlivents,
work from the command line
mount -v -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom1 cdrom
mount -v -t vfat /dev/mds_disk mds_disk
On system boot I can see the line:
but nothing appears in /var/log/sys.log
The automount process is running but /media is totally empty.
Thanks for any advice.
