a device? what use is a link to /dev/hdb? you would need to be a little more involved than that really... any mountpoint or suchlike would presumably need to be passed as a parameter to which "explorer" clone etc...

Should've been more specific than that, sorry.

What I meant was, can I make a shortcut to the menu that opens a device for me in a file manager, in this case konqueror. Device like cdrom.

Not sure if blackbox menu is the same format as fluxbox, but if so edit your menu file and add something like:
Code:
[exec] (cdrom drive) {konqueror /mnt/cdrom}
This will open konqueror displaying '/mnt/cdrom'. This is only going to work if your cdrom drive is mounted already though...
If you set konq to open /dev/cdrom you will only get an error.
