|The very first suggestion by SaidinUnleashed is the one and only true answer. Unfortunately a typo on his part caused a snag that apparently sent you in the wrong direction.|
The file is /etc/fstab
It is composed of 5 columns. The 4th colum is the one you need to look at here. This column contains the mount options for your devices. If the mount options include "user" or "users", then regular users can mount devices.
If there's something else overriding fstab in this case, I don't know what it is.
Also, as long as sudo does not require user dsl to enter a password, the "security" on your system is not much better than it was before.
Also #2: This forum is only a day old and already it's tainted. This forum is for posting tips, not for asking questions.
Thanks again for you guys, you are so kind to answer my question even I posted it in a wrong forum. Sorry...
I've tried to edit the /etc/fstab file. I replaced the "users" strings with "root". Without any luck, it turns out that the /etc/fstab file was dynamically created everytime when the system was booted up. (The original value "users" were restored...)
How can I deal with it?
