[oclug] Mount drive on USB port

I've got one of those hot pluggable hard drive enclosures, and if I plug
it in to my USB port, I can see it as /dev/sda and make a partition as
/dev/sda1. So far so good, but when I mount it, I need to sudo the mount
command, and then it ends up owned by root, whereupon I can't see it as
I could cheat, and put an entry in my fstab and say "user", but that
doesn't seem right to put a permanent entry for a temporary mount.
What's the neat way to do it?
(I made a FAT32/vfat partition, by the way, because I'll probably want
to use it on windoze machines, too.)
Using Ubuntu Dapper.
