I use the following for my backup disk:

POINT] string:fstype=ext3 array:string:extra_options=""

This is all one line, right?
In which file should this go?
Somewhere in the /etc/hal/fdi hierarchy?

This looks like it sends a command to the desktop to do the mount, so
it depends on an installed desktop?

This was supposed to be two commands, I have it in a bash script to do
backups. It uses hal/dbus to mount a partition, it's the same mechanism that
desktops (KDE, gnome) use. It doesn't depend on the desktop to function.
