[CentOS] Centos 5 card reader automount

To this point, whenever I've plugged a storage device (flash drive, mp3 player)
into a USB plug, it's magically mounted and I get an icon on my desktop.

I've just got a card reader and it doesn't automount.  I can mount it
manually with "mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/temp" and that works fine.

I would prefer to have it automount and give me the desktop icon.
Unfortunately, I don't yet know enough about the automounting mechanism to know
what I need to change to make this happen.

Here is the relevant portion of /var/log/messages when I plug in the card
reader:

Again, it works fine if I use a mount command to mount it myself.  How can I
get it to automount and give me the desktop icon?
