HALd configuration

I have a Seagate ST380817 (80 GB SATA) in an external Mediasonic HD2-SU2 
(USB hard drive enclosure).
It works in Linux but I can't unmount it as a user.
KDE/HAL mounts it as root.
A hack solution is to add an /etc/fstab entry.
I'd rather fix the HAL configuration to let users unmount it.

My USB memory key mounts and unmounts fine as a user.
