    What permissions are you talking about? File permissions?

    What DE are you using? KDE 3.5? KDE4? Gnome? XFCE? None?

    What OS?

    well i have installed Linux 2.6.27.7-4-default i686 - kde 4.1.3. .
    In the previous installed system suse 11.1 but not the final i had access to hard disks. i was able to see windows partitions and read and copy whatever have inside.And of course i had access to suse partitions as user. i take this message

    "An error occurred while accessing "volume (ext3), the system responded: org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedPyPolicyrg.
    freedesktop.Hal.storage.mount-removable auth_admin_keep_always (action,result)

    this happens also for fixed disks.

    go Yast > Security > Local Security and click through next next next
    until you come to the page with Miscellaneous Settings, and a flip
    box with File Permissions choices of "Easy", "Secure" and "Paranoid"..

    read the help in that window and select "Easy" and then "Finish" as i
    did....and have for years....and, have had no bogeyman steal my stuff..

    or, maybe you have another problem....i really don't quite understand
    the question/problem as i've never seen it....i wonder if either of
    you make it a practice to occasionally sign into KDE or GNOME as root??

    Make sure you add the relevant user(s) to 'disk' group. (Its been widely reported around here).
