This is pretty much what I've tried. My user is in the Wheel group.  
Would this exact configuration work ?    Should I set any other 
permission in order to have the user from the wheel group to mount drives?

Thanks for posting your configuration.

PS: One thing I've noticed with this specific user, whenever he creates 
something the file/directory will show owner:username   group:username.
I've used the command "groups" as well as chpass I think and they gave 
me only one group for this username... wheel.  Why doesn't wheel appear 
as the group owner for stuff that username is creating ?
