Is there any security concern having a user belonging to the group operator ?
Thanks again Dany

This is pretty much what I've tried. My user is in the Wheel group. Would this exact configuration work ? Should I set any other permission in order to have the user from the wheel group to mount drives?
Thanks for posting your configuration.
PS: One thing I've noticed with this specific user, whenever he creates
something the file/directory will show owner:username group:username.
I've used the command "groups" as well as chpass I think and they gave
me only one group for this username... wheel. Why doesn't wheel appear
as the group owner for stuff that username is creating ?
When you add a user with "adduser" by default FreeBSD creates a group similar named like the username. If you later say that this user should be in group wheel it's additional.
added the following to /dev/devfs.conf
link acd0 cdrom
perm acd0 0660
This line just gives write access to group. You can either add the line: own acd0 root:wheel
or you edit /etc/groups and add your user to the group operator. I'd prefere the latter.
Here's my simple /etc/group example: # $FreeBSD: src/etc/group,v 1.28 2003/04/27 05:49:53 imp Exp $ # wheel:*:0:root,harry daemon:*:1: kmem:*:2: sys:*:3: tty:*:4: operator:*:5:root,harry mail:*:6: bin:*:7: news:*:8: man:*:9: games:*:13: staff:*:20: sshd:*:22: smmsp:*:25: mailnull:*:26: guest:*:31: bind:*:53: uucp:*:66: dialer:*:68: network:*:69: www:*:80: nogroup:*:65533: nobody:*:65534: harry:*:####: uli:*:####: schowi:*:####: administrator:*:####: alle:*:####:root,harry,uli,schowi,administrator setiathome:*:####:
