Automatically unmount USB drives if no app accesses them anymore?

  1. I switched from SuSE 9.2 Linux to a new PowerBook. I must say OSX is
    really a ton better. It's a whole new computer experience.

    Anyway, there's one thing I liked under Linux: You could set it up so
    that it automatically mounts my USB hard drive whenever an application
    tries to access it (e.g. when I click the icon or when I cd to that
    path). It was also automagically *unmounted* when I closed that

    This seems to me the ideal way to handle USB drives. I just close the
    application that's using it and can safely unplug the USB drive!

    Can I set that up in OSX, too? (I use tiger)
