Then press the unlock button and enter your password. Then select the users you want to block and go to user privileges. Then what you do is deselect "mount" and that should block it.

Hope that helps

but i don't see mount on user privileges.. under Jaunty

Then maybe it was only added in karmic. Its just I can block users from mounting at the moment under karmic.
If you wait for the release of ubuntu 9.10 you can revoke mount privileges.
I was nearly sure that you could do that in jaunty though anyhow you will have to wait.

Can you help with this problem?
