This requires the package "pmount" and adding your user to the "plugdev"
group. Using pmount has the advantage that you don't have to write new
fstab entries if you want to use more than one usb stick at the same
time (/dev/sdb, /dev/sdc, etc) or if you have more than one partition on
the medium (/dev/sda2, /dev/sda3, etc).
