I do this via autofs, and just say /mnt/dvd when I want UDF and /mnt/cdrom
when I want a CDROM. It does depend on having my eyes open when I stick
the medium in the drive...

Of course, this merely bypasses the autodetection.

Ed Campbell's <ed@Tekelex.Com> pointers for long trips:
7. Be prepared to have at least 1 flat, 2 electrical problems and a
broken chain. Maybe a broken clutch cable too. The best prevention
is to be able to fix it on the spot, only things you can't fix
will break according to the law.
