I'm having a similar problem. Check your boot log to see if dbus started
properly. I'm having some of the same problems and am gathering info from
logs etc. If dbus failed try to start it with
[ sudo /etc/rc.d/dbus start ] see if automounting works, it did for me.


Life's fun when your sick and psychotic!
