In SuSE Linux, when I inserted a thumb drive/inserted a floppy/inserted a CD, it would automatically mount itself, without requiring root privaleges or a system restart. So how do you do it? Does anyone know how to automatically mount drives?

You should look into ivman. The fast way:
Code:

emerge dbus hal ivman
rc-update add dbus default
rc-update add hald default
rc-update add ivman default
/etc/init.d/dbus start
/etc/init.d/hald start
/etc/init.d/ivman start

I would also unmask the latest versions of these packages, since they are still very young the so-called unstable packages works often better than the "stable" ones. At least for me.
