See if you can get any helpful hints or pointers from this recent thread:
viewtopic.php?f=47&t=38369

From personal experience with Ubuntu 9.10, Fedora 12, etc., something went slightly wrong in the development of the most recent versions for the PPC and very possibly AMD. I haven't yet encountered the same problems (automounting drives, recognizing media, etc.) with Intel-based systems (Intel Macs or Intel PCs).
