	Okay, I've set vfs.usermount=1, but both totem and kmplayer
	refuse to play my audio-CD.  Using #mount alone (as root)
	doesn't say anything about /dev/acd0.  I have tried to mount 
	the CD ::

	root at tao2:/dev# mount_cd9660 /dev/acd0 /media/cdroms/0
	mount_cd9660: /dev/acd0: Invalid argument


	root at tao2:/dev# mount_cd9660  /media/cdroms/0 /dev/acd0
	mount_cd9660: /dev/acd0: not a directory

	In /, media and its subdirectories are mode 777, and in
	/dev, acd[01] are all 0666 char devices.

	Any more places to mouse-click on or files/directories to

	Oh: FWIW:

	root at tao2:/dev# mount
	/dev/ad0s1a on / (ufs, local)
	devfs on /dev (devfs, local)
	/dev/ad1s1d on /var (ufs, local)
	/dev/ad1s1f on /usr (ufs, local, soft-updates)
	/dev/ad1s1e on /home (ufs, local)
	/dev/ad1s1g on /store (ufs, local, soft-updates)
