[kde-linux] Only root can unmount /dev/sda1

This seems like I should have been able to figure it out on my own. But a
week later, I still haven't found any documentation on it and so I pass it to
My environment is KDE 3.4 on Gentoo Linux 2.6.12r10 and I am trying to build
systems for end users in environments where there will be no root access
On my KDE desktop, I have all of my Storage Media nicely lined up in my
Storage Media Applett. But when I choose to "Unmount" any of my usb keys or
floppies or cd roms or DVDs, I am informed that "only root can unmourt".
Sure... well it wasn't root who MOUNTED it... (grin).
Now, I can get around this by adding the devices and their permissions in
fstab - but that would totally bypass the entire concept of the
kio_media_mounthelper. It's automatic! That's the POINT! ;-)
So how do I set the permissions for mountable devices - in a dynamic
environment - that don't actually exist until someone inserts them?
There has to be a conf file somewhere right?
