Note that /media/"FU 20080204 8 x86_64 DVD" is not the same as
/media/"FU\ 20080204\ 8\ x86_64\ DVD", but should be the same as
/media/FU\ 20080204\ 8\ x86_64\ DVD. If you excape the spaces using
the \, then you do NOT want the "s around the name. If you do, then
the \s do not escape the space, but are used as is. SO you get
FU\ 20080204\ 8\ x86_64\ DVD
FU 20080204 8 x86_64 DVD
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
