Really? It sounds like a security issue if you can install drivers for
mounting file systems without admin rights.

I wasn't refering to a driver issue, but having the bios not be able to
boot from usb devices eitehr because they are old computers or because the

they are physically accessible to the public, attached to our network
and we don't want people to boot their own OS on them and cause problems.)
