> How I can allow to non-root users to mount disks
a) add the device to your /etc/fstab with the 'user' or 'users' option, then
have your user issue a mount of the mountpoint (not the device), or
b) add the user to your /etc/sudoers, restricting permission to just the
execution of a mount command for the device, then have your user issue a sudo
mount for the device to the mountpoint of his (or her) choice.
c) I believe that some automounter software will do this for you, so install the
appropriate automounter, and the user will not have to do anything (automounters
have their own problems, so you may find this choice the poorest one).
