Thanks for the suggestions. I made the changes (amongst a few others) and made
version 0.01a available. It seems, though, that not every version of df (which I
used) has the --exclude-type option available, so if you have a more trustworthy
way of detecting FAT/NTFS, feel free to tell. At least on one Solaris machine
the detection doesn't work and running the script fails (then again, I don't
know if mplayer works on Solaris either?).

I didn't actually even test the detection itself, as I don't have any FAT or
NTFS partitions. I just tried it with vfat (or ntfs) replaced with reiserfs and
it worked, so I assume it's okay.
