The default policy in hal.conf is user=0, I had to change it to
something more suitable, to me the logical group was 'users'. I know
other distros uses different groups for this, Debian uses 'plugdev',
ArchLinux uses 'storage' etc. I got nothing against changing the
group, 'users' was just a suggestion that works out-of-the-box.
