edit /etc/fstab file
by default only root can mount drives, but that can easily be modified to allow other users to mount drives etc.
go to /etc/fstab file and open it using u'r favorite editor (as root or do the su) for editing and add the following line to it
/dev/hd(some letter and number) /mnt/dosdrive vfat noauto,user,rw 0 0
This would allow the other users to mount the drive as well.
by the way
hd(some letter and number) -> your partition id that you want to map like hda1 , hda2 ..etc
for more information plz refer to
ps. as a user other than root , use the command
mount /mnt/hd(some letter and number) to mount the drive
hope this helps.
