    Either
    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).
