hmmm, freebsd.org seems to be broken for me....
- man devfs.rules
- create /etc/devfs.rules: ( substitute wheel for the group you want )
add path 'da*s*' mode 0660 group wheel
- append to /etc/rc.conf:
- make sure the dir you are mounting on is owned by the user who
issues the mount command.
- make sure vfs.usermount=1
- reboot after changing devfs.rules & rc.conf
worked for me, let us know if it worked for you.
