Hello !!!

I don't know how to mount local devices automatically using amd. Devices such as cdrom, floppy discs ...

I've read somewhere that it's posible.

Conventionally, your devices to mount at boot time are in
/etc/mtab (/etc/fstab shows all mounts)  There is proprietary
software to mount these devices at boot time, but in my
experience in order to mount a CD at boot time, you must have
one in the drive.  A better way to do it is this:

/root/bin/cd-on
mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /cdrom  # or your mount point
/root/bin/cd-off
umount /dev/cdrom
/root/bin/floppy
mount -t ext2 [or msdos] /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy # or whatever
/root/bin/unfloppy
umount /dev/fd0

You get the idea -- simple one line shell scripts to
automate the tasks when needed.  Remember to chmod +x
these files after you create them. (and it doesn't have
to be /root/bin -- I just use that so I can see all the
neat little 'binaries' I've created)
