Re: disable the automatic mount feature of usb

See how hotplugs are handled - http://www.novell.com/documentation/sled10/readme/RELEASE-NOTES.en.html#b554yf2

Check udev rules - /etc/udev/rules.d/

Here is more information how to write own rules - http://www.reactivated.net/writing_udev_rules.html
