Only root can mount my memory stick

Last night I installed Kubuntu Preview 5.10 Breezy Beaver and am using the 
same home directory as under Kubuntu 5.04.

Under 5.04, my user could mount & umount my memory stick.  Now, with 5.10 
Preview when the same user right-clicks the memory stick icon and chooses 
"Mount", the message "Only root can mount /dev/sda1 on /media/sda1." is 

The same message is given if I plug in my stick and hope for the system to 
recognize the hotplug event.

I know this is not strictly a "pure" KDE question but I have not been given 
access to the ubuntu-list mailing list as of yet.  Any help is much 

Thanks, Bob
