On an old server of mine, USB disks with ext3 filesystems are mounted

Where is this defined? I would like my old server to mount with
writeback as well. The server is 7.04 (yes!) and the laptop is 9.04.

My best guess is /etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf, but confirmation would be
nice. This file doesn't exist on my 9.04 laptop, so I still want to know
how the USB mount options are defined for later versions...
