|Supermount lives as a patch. It's not updated from 2.4.24 onwards, so I recommend getting it from Con Kolivas patchset, because he has updated it to work with newer kernels. Then on kernel config it can be selected in the filesystems menu..|
It's then used like this:
mount none /floppy -t supermount -o dev=/dev/fd0
It's meant for removable devices; when inserted, it does nothing. But if one is in when you cd into that directory, it mounts it automatically, and the second you stop writing to it, you can just remove the floppy/cd/whatever instantly... No mounting/unmounting hassles..
I downloaded the kernel supermount patch in a deb file. I installed it but I wonder if I have to compile a kernel, or it is not necessary?
p.s Have you try any special patchset? Because I've got kernel 2.4.26.
