How do you change permissions so that a normal user can mount a hard drive.

Add the "user" option to column four in /etc/fstab against the drive you want them to be able to mount. If you don't want it to mount at boot you should include "noauto" too.

NOTE: You may need to create an entry (line) in /etc/fstab if it does not exist.
