Are you looking for an auto-play kind of thing, or just an automagic
amd can be configured for mount-on-demand (when chdir'd to). I think
that's even in the examples section for amd.
"scsictl $cd tur" will work if you want to have a daemon constantly
polling for it...hmmm, anyone write autoplayd yet? :)
[obviously that's half tongue in cheek -- we don't want to try to auto-
execute windows scripts, but perhaps we could add functionality for
UNIX-style distribution CDs...]

NetBSD: it'll be there when you're ready for it.
