Does anyone have a more comprehensive /etc/auto.disks script for autofs that takes into consideration all mounted disks, even NTFS, FAT32? So all that's needed to mount any attached drive is ls /mnt/sda1 or ls /mnt/sdb2?

This guide along the line of what I'm looking for, except this guy only accesses ext3 drives.

        echo "$opts :/dev/${key}";
