I agree auto-mounting from a live CD is a bad idea. Even automatically using swap on the harddrive is bad, as it could erase a hibernated state. Also, auto using the hard drive may cause problems if the reason the person is using a live cd is because the hard drive is failing. The original request was not for automatic mounting, but the ability to mount from the desktop. Presumably this should be done by creating a fstab entry for each partition on the hard-drive and mark it as no auto mounting, and mountable by the default user. Finally, an icon should be added to the desktop, to allow the person to mount simply by clicking on the icon.
