/usr/bin/polkit-gnome-authorization

That program controlls the permissions that include mounting usb drives. You will need to set them because the program needs the root password.

go to org->freedesktop->hal->storage

you will need to modify to "yes" for all implicit authorizations.
* Mount file systems from removable drives
* Eject removable media

For each one click on it and hit edit. For all three drop down lists set to "yes"
