Hi Carlos,
I had a similar set up with 9.1 but in 9.2 it doesn't work. If you get 9.2
you should only need
/dev/sda /media/zip auto defaults,noauto,user,exec 0 0
most people find this or similar works fine. Its actually simpler but seems
to disobey all the usual rules for hds.

I have:

/dev/sda1 /media/zip auto defaults,noauto,user,exec 0 4
/dev/sda4 /media/zip2 auto defaults,noauto,user,exec 0 0

I have had that setting for years, and 9.1 worked first time, but I never
allowed it to use automount. The only snag is that I have to issue
"modprobe imm" manually. I would like to automate it somehow, so that
issuing the mount command triggers the module loading as needed. It should
be possible, I suppose, but I haven't bothered much to learn how.
