Non-root mount of usb hard drive not working

I am using FC11
I have added the following line to /etc/fstab

/dev/sdd1 /media/myhdd ntfs-3g rw,users 0 0

As root I can successfully mout the drive using
mount /media/myhdd

As a normal user if I call
mount /media/myhdd

Nothing happens, no error, no mounted drive, nothing. However if I mount the drive as root the normal user can successfully unmount the drive.

Does anyone know why the mount is not working and what I can do to fix it?

Thanks in advance

I remember getting that to work some years ago and it was a pain. See here for a list of things to check:
