mounting pen drive through sudo without root password

I want to allow a user called 'kkyy' the mounting of pendrive from their own accounts on RHEL 3.0 workstation(Taroon). How can i achieve this ?

I tried to insert following command in /etc/sudoers
kkyy ALL=NOPASSWORD: /usr/bin/mount

Is it correct way ?

Shouldn't it be /bin/mount?
