You can set that option in your /etc/fstab
it will be something like:
/dev/#### /mnt ext2 user,ro,noauto 0 0
#### is your block device.PARPORT
/mnt the mountpoint
ext2 is the filesystem(can also be another filesystem of course
user indicates all memebers of group user can mount it
ro stands for read-only
noauto means no automatic mount on startup
1st "0" means no dump
2nd "0" means no fschk
type "man fstab" for details.
