They are working on it.  It is a "Draft".  man

gnome-mount now does it job as it should.  I can mount
floppies this using gnome-mount -d /dev/fd0 and USB
drives are automatically mounted.  FC6 is looking
great so far.  Hope that most bugs are ironed out and
all users expect a better fedora than before.  

I guess I should wait for FC6

No, do not give up on Fedora because of this.  Use the
command line tools that have worked for us in the
past.  mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy,.  Make a directory
/mnt/cdrom and use the command mount /dev/hdc
/mnt/cdrom and we can see the cdrom mounted in the
case that it did not mount automagically.  We need to
give more feedback and just like Ric said complain,
someone will hear and make changes and the next fedora
release should be better than the previous one.
