Remove floppy icon from Gnome desktop
Gnome 2.6.2 on Mandrake 10.1. I do use the floppy drive sometimes, so mounting it automatically is great, but I don't want the icon on my desktop. I can't drag it to the trash because I get an error message telling me that I cannot delete a volume icon and if I want to unmount, I must use "Eject" in the right click menu...but "Eject" does not exist in the right click menu. I can't unmount it by right clicking because only root can unmount it, so what I've been doing is opening a terminal as root and unmounting from there, then opening a terminal and remounting if I want to use the drive. There has got to be an easier way, but if there is, I sure can't find it.
This is rather frustrating. All I want to do is access the floppy from Places > Computer in Nautilus instead of having the icon on the desktop, but getting rid of it is like getting rid of visiting relatives. :?
