Location of mount icons in gnome

Hello together,

I want to have access for file browsing on some servers over ssh and used Places -> Connect to Server -> Service Type: "SSH" which works just fine.

But one thing that I don't like is that the icons are placed on the Desktop and can't be moved anywhere else it seems (running Red Hat 5.1)...

Is there a way to put them into another directory?

Thanks in advance.

found it out myself...

for anybody having the same problem:
open gconf-editor and uncheck "volumes_visible" in apps -> nautilus -> desktop.

thanks for anybody looking to help me though.
