daemon is inhibited


I've got two 2.5" drives that I'm trying to get into the files. They are in external usb enclosures. They don't show up under "Places" (Ubuntu 10.04). However, I can see the partitions and sizes using Red Hat's Disk Utility. When trying to mount either of them I get the message "Daemon is inhibited".
Will someone please post instructions, that if involving the command line, are exact?

Thank you, Doug
