The vfat thing... I don't know.  My guess was that perhaps the kernel 
wasn't setup for it, thus the check in /proc/filesystems.  But I don't 
know where to go from there, as it says it's fine.  I'd suspect it might 
be something having to do with the hal internals that decide whether it's 
a filesystem and return the notification based on that, but don't know 
enough about those internals to be of any additional help and that's just 
a guess.

The audiocd: kioslave thing too... I don't use enough to know much 
about.  I only know it's there.  Maybe I'll play with it someday and 
figure out a bit more about it.  Maybe not.  And if I do, "someday" could 
be anything from later today, to years from now.  (More than a couple 
years, however, and the whole thing could well be changed enough that 
it's a whole different concept I'm playing with, by then...)

But if anyone else has info or ideas on either one, I'll be happy to 
learn, too. =:^)
