[K12OSN] HotPlug

Hi Huck,

I had some issues running a USB pen drive on my machine running FC1.

The trick was the fstab entry. I created a folder named /mnt/usbdrv

Then I treated my USB drive as another form of removable media. 

A single desktop config file mounts/unmounts the USB drive in a similar
manner to a CDR/RW drive. Doing this in fstab gives the drive root

NOTE - This is on a local installation of Linux, NOT LTSP.
