I guess I should have specified a little clearer. My desktop users have an
icon on their desktops so they can access the cdrom, usb flash drives, etc.
They need the ability to just right-click an select mount or unmount. I have
temporarily setuid on mount and umount, but this allows these users to mount
and unmount core filesystems, too. I would like to get away from this.
