Getting the automount back

It seems that disk images (or .dmg) seldomly loose their bindings to the DiskImageMounter.app. This kind of mess can happen when upgrading from Panther to Tiger.

Getting the bindings back is as simple as Option-i on an image and change the Open with setting. But what if you cannot see the DiskImageMounter application and is not in the list anymore?

I just ran a quick search, and the path is:

/System/Library/CoreServices/DiskImageMounter

If you are bored, you should take a look in this folder. It seems to contain a bunch of useful things

UPDATED: If the Finder does not allow the Change All option, you might try to fix the disk permissions using the Disk Utility.
