If you want to make specific partitions mountable for users, you can 
make an entry in /etc/fstab with the mount option "users". Such an entry 
might look like this:

UUID=2d4c9fff-da1d-445f-b3d8-031d6b12a6d4 /data ext3 defaults,users 0 2

For more details try the command

man -a fstab mount

in a terminal and/or have a look at
