Hi I'm back with some results :)
Sorry I took so long to get back, as I was having troubles with getting
Gnome-2.14.2 working right.
The problems I had was having no icons, incomplete menus and lots of other
problems that were solved by making sure I had deleted the hidden
configuration directory's stored in both the root and user directory's.
And that was after installing Gnome another three times before I had looked
deeper into the problem.
Any how all is working with the following fixes:

In fact, I had made two policy groups (usb and cdrom). I also forgot to add
the "usb" and "cdrom" groups in the /etc/groups file, otherwise the devices
would still be set as root:root.

That did the trick, but I now have all of the hard drive partitions on the
Has anyone found out how to stop that from happening yet?

Can I use the fstab to help stop the automounting of unwanted harddrive links
on the desktop?
Also, I have noticed that I cant directly umount/eject a device that has a
automount icon/short cut on the desktop. I can eject/umount the device with
the application that was "auto run" when the device was first automounted.
I think I'm over my own head here I think :(
Or It is just me needing a bit of a learning curve on the subject.
