    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.
