[Nottingham] flash drives: U3 insanity.

Hi Guys,

Quick question, does anyone know of a way to access the U3 gubbins that 
automounts as an ISO 9660 "partition" on certain flash drives so that it 
is writeable?  I know there is a utility available to remove the U3 system 
altogether, but I would rather just clobber the autorun.inf and be able to 
use the U3 utility under Windows at my own discretion from time to time. 
I am also frustrated by the fact that I can't seem to unmount/eject the 
"$%^ thing, in Windows, MacOSX, or Ubuntu!

I am aware that you can hold down shift in Windows to stop it 
autolaunching, but would rather it had a default behaviour of just not 
loading in the first place!
