Simple.  Add `user' to the options of the floppy, cdrom, and zip
entries in /etc/fstab and every user will be able to mount / umount
these file systems.  BTW, mount already _is_ suid just to be able to do
this.  Being suid, it still refuses to mount / umount file systems which
don't have the `user' option in /etc/fstab.
