I haven't tried Fedora 10 yet, but in Fedora 9:  There's an
authorisations (personal system) preferences in Gnome which can diddle
whether partitions will be added without you typing in a password again
(e.g. it can be a once off, then it's always auto mounted, it can
require a password every time it's mounted, etc.).

And, if you want something mounted read-only, all the time, you can add
an entry to the fstab file for it.  Then, the auto-mounter won't do
anything with it.

Syntax:  /dev   /mountpoint  fileysystemtype  options

e.g. /dev/sdb3   /mnt/windows fat32  ro

Change the parameters to suit your own situation.  See the man files for
mount and fstab, at least.

Tip:  Don't put manually mounted partitions inside /media.  That's where
the auto-mounter does its tricks, and you might pick a fight with it.
