Bug#456156: cannot mount usb device; incomprehensible error message

In order for a user to mount devices from Konqueror/Nautilus (using HAL), they 
must be in the "plugdev" group.  To add a user to the plugdev group, either 
use kuser or run the command as root:
	adduser someuser plugdev

I've seen this detail trip up plenty of people before, and something will have 
to be done about it.

After adding your user(s) to the "plugdev" group, you should 
restore /etc/dbus-1/system.d/hal.conf to its original state.  If you don't 
have a backup copy, you can reinstall the "hal" package and instruct it to 
discard your changes.
