as for thunar or konq im not quite sure. however for now you can do this as root

create a mount point
Code:
mkdir /mnt/usb

find the usb device (for example it might be /dev/sdb)
Code:
fdisk -l

mount the device
Code:
mount /dev/sdb /mnt/usb

you can now access it through /mnt/usb

OK> I can do it manually. I just want my KDE to mount it automatically.
Thanks,
