Seriously, why can't you just premount __fixed disks__ on boot? If you don't 
want to do that, use noauto option in conjunction with the user (or users) 
option in /etc/fstab. Then as I said you will be able to mount the disk via 
media:/

Sure you do. But you know Linux is not some Windows and if everyone could 
premount a fixed disk by default, that would pose a security risk.

Probably because ubuntu installer adds your disk to /etc/fstab with noauto and 
user options. Or ubuntu hacked their KDE and hal/permissions in the way that 
it does not look like the real KDE/Linux anymore. It _might_ be possible to 
mount fixed disks via hal but I'm not really sure about that.

P.S. NTFS support in HAL-mounting is known to be broken.
