You don't. G-V-M has been obsolete for a few years, even before the
deprecation of HAL - from memory, gnome-mount was it's replacement.
Under newer Gnome, I think the function is provided by either nautilus,
or gnome-disk-utility - I'm not sure which.

Confusing, I know, but things seem to be settling down again now...
they've worked out what works and what doesn't, albeit learning it the
hard way...
