It works!

I accidentally cut power to a FireWire drive, which brought my PowerBook to a grinding halt. When I restarted, Mac OS X (10.2.8) wouldn't mount optical discs or disk images.

Indeed, my /etc/hostconfig file was missing an AUTODISKMOUNT line. Replacing it and restarting fixed the problem.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
