Arch Hal issues
Err, sorry for that. I was in a hurry and didn't get to typing out my message. Ahem.
I'm trying to set up ntfs mounting on Arch (current) and KDE as a DM. This is the code I get when I attempt to mount any drive other than my linux partitions.
An error occurred while accessing "200.0 GiB Hard Drive', The system responded: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules: type="method_call", sender=":1.20" (uid=1000 pid=2109 comm="kdeinit4:dolphin [kdeinit] -icon-system-file-mana") interface=" org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume member="Mount" error name "(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination=" org.freedesktop.Hal" (uid=0 pid-1576 comm= "usr/sbin/hald))
I'm not sure what else to try.
Thanks in advanced

If you're logging in with KDM, .xinitrc is not called, so that shouldn't matter. I am curious, though, if you have in ~/.xinitrc
exec ck-launch-session startkde
Unfortunately, the whole consolekit, policykit, HAL tangle is a confusing mess with many recent and rapid changes. There are a number of possible fixes listed in the Arch Hal Wiki. Have you gone through those?
EDIT: Oh, first, are you a member of the storage group?
gpasswd -a user storage

I've edited my user permissions with nano and they seemed fine. I've got storage, wheel, all that. When i first installed KDE, i don't remember how but I think I set up an alias for startx as just "kde", because that's how i start it. If I set that up in a different way, would starting kde with startx potentially solve the problem?
EDIT: for clearification, I login to arch, then start KDE from there.
Re-EDIT: I started with startx instead of my alias KDE and now mounting works. Oddly enough, I can not find my alias but "kde" works to start KDE
