Yes, and the window that comes out is like the linked image in my
previous post. The problem is that, within this window, you can choose
which programs to use for autoplay *only* from a predefined list. For
instance for Audio CD I can choose between Totem, Rhythmbox, Do
Nothing, and Open Folder.
There is no "Custom" "Use-your-command-here" or other, which is very
strange (a bug???). Now, I can't possibly believe that this list of 4
choices is hard coded (can it be? o_O), but I could not find where is
the corresponding configuration file.
I hope I was more clear now.. :) Probably my English syntax is a bit
convoluted :)

Well, thanks anyway! Is it possible that no one is using gnome on
fedora9 (especially after all the complains about kde 4 :D) and
encountered the same issue/need? mumble mumble....
In case you'll put the hands on a Fedora9 machine and want to have a
look for this, let me know!
