In Dapper it seems by default any non-Linux drives don't get mounted
automatically. I can get to it by starting 'Disks' from the
Administration menu, then it appears in the /tmp folder, and I can do a
'browse' as well. However that browser then runs as root, which makes it
a lot harder to drag and drop files. (Like you cant drag something to
the desktop then)
I would like to have all drives mounted automatically at startup. I

option so that I can access the drives from my regular user account in
gnome. This works for my FAT32 drives, but not for my main NTFS drive.
(I know NTFS is read-only, but the normal user also can't read it even
though the 'user' parameter is specified. Do I have to specify
additional parameters, specific permissions perhaps?
What's the best wat to go about this? I'd prefer total & easy access to
