mounting external harddisk with fstab-sync as a non-root user



Hi,
    My FC3 box can recognize my external usb harddisk when I plug it
in. In gnome the icons pop up on the desktop but when I try to open it
to read it, it tells me that I do not have the permission to do it!!!

I realize that only root can read the /media/whatever_stuff which is mounted.

I would like to enable it for a normal user. How do I do this? Thanks
for the help

I mean I don't know the idea behind this but it's kind of silly that
only root is able to read an external harddrive.

Cheers,
Didier.
