Are you using FC3.?
On mine (as my regular user) it creates the device, the mount point, and
automounts it so I can browse using nautilus in gnome.
It does not put an entry is fstab.
I can manually unmount it, or remount it at will. However, using the
desktop menu to unmount it also removes the mount point, so I have to
either manually recreate the mount point or use an existing mount point
after unmounting via the menu.
