daemon is inhibited

Forums: 

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
