Nothing, nil return. /media has no content, as it appears when one opens /media directory viewer window.
Gnome shows a "Computer" icon on the desktop, which when opened shows all the partitions that are mounted in /media as well as all the CD and DVD drive icons. Xfce doesn't seem to provide that facility.
Gnome was mounting my Win2000 (NTFS) and other FAT32 partitions in /media, although I'm not sure where this done as there no entries in /etc/fstab for these mounts. Anyway, none of this is happening with Xfce.
All very mysterious.
