If I understand this correctly, it's a mount/umount rule - normal
users cannot run root commands.  They are written to disallow normal
users from performing root tasks.

However, if you are using gnome, you can use the gnome-umount command
(which is the equivalent of right-clicking the icon and selecting
"Unmount").  I suspect there is a similar analogue in KDE.
