From the release notes:
7.7. No automatic fstab editing for removable media
The fstab-sync facility has been removed. In Fedora Core , the
fstab-sync program is removed in favor of desktop specific solutions for
mounting removable media. Entries for hotplug devices or inserted media
are no longer automatically added to the /etc/fstab file. Command-line
users may migrate to gnome-mount, which provides similar functionality.
I haven't seen the rationale for the change and I'm not certain that I
like it. I liked the automatic fstab editing and not everything that I
do with USB drives is desktop oriented. I'm going to see how it goes as
as I use FC5 more.
