You want to modify the /etc/fstab file. Anything in there NOT listed as noauto should mount. But you may have problems if the resources aren't available... What I would do if list them in there as noauto, then bring them up manually...

For example, one line in my /etc/fstab might be:
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy defaults,noauto 1 1

At the command prompt, I can just type:
mount /dev/fd0
or in some case, just "mount fd0".

Check the man page for mount, and fstab for more info.

gitmount - GNU Interactive Tools - auto-mount script SYNTAX
gitmount device DESCRIPTION
gitmount is a script which allows you to mount any block device without specifying the file system type. You may now insert the floppy in the drive and type ' gitmount fd0' and the first floppy will be mounted in the directory /mnt/fd0. On Linux just press F11 or F12. You don't need to know the file system type anymore. The directories /mnt/fd0 and /mnt/fd1 are created if they don't exist. BUGS
