You can just put a file called my-storage-policy.fdi or something else
ending in .fdi into /usr/share/hal/fdi/95userpolicy with this content

        <deviceinfo version="0.2">
            <match key="info.udi" string="/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer">
              <merge key="storage.policy.default.mount_option.exec" type="bool">false</\merge>
              <merge key="storage.policy.default.mount_option.noexec" type="bool">true<\/merge>
              <merge key="storage.policy.default.mount_option.nodev" type="bool">true</\merge>
to achieve this.

All the various keys and the XML format is described in this document (a
little bit out of date, but not much)


which I, at some point, hope to include with the hal-devel package
in /usr/share/doc/hal- at version@/spec and make the man page for fstab-
sync point to it. It probably wont make FC3 though.
