No worries Mike. I think I can make a good guess as to where the 
authorisation came from too. When you mount an internal disk by clicking 
on one of the disk icons in the "Places" menu in Gnome it prompts for 
authorisation (ie the root password). Underneath there is a tick box 
which says something like, "remember this authorisation permanently.", 
which is enabled by default. If you don't untick it, then it essentially 
creates an explicit policy for you. Anyway, glad it worked. :-)
