I guess I should have specified a little clearer.  My desktop users have an 
icon on their desktops so they can access the cdrom, usb flash drives, etc.  
They need the ability to just right-click an select mount or unmount.  I have 
temporarily setuid on mount and umount, but this allows these users to mount 
and unmount core filesystems, too. I would like to get away from this.
