GNOME SlackBuild - Broadband icon moved and renamed ?

Hi all,

I have a laptop with Slackware 13.0 and Gnomeslackbuild 2.26.
With this laptop I use a Virgin Mobile broadband wireless device.

Today the icon for the broadband changed it's location and name.
It used to appear on my desktop as "Broadband2Go".
But this morning it now appears as "CD-ROM Drive" in the "Computer" folder.
The only changes I can recall making to Slackware 13.0 is attempting to compile and install the libggz libraries.
BUT I could have sworn that the broadband icon did not change after attempting to install the libggz libraries.

Being new to Gnome; (I only switched recently to Gnome because KDE4 is not as good as KDE3.5.); I'm not certain what in Gnome controls the naming and location of the media that gets automatically mounted when logging in to Gnome.

Can someone point me in the right direction to having the broadband device once again appear on the Desktop as "Broadband2Go" ?

Happy New Year, slacker_et It has been quite some time since I've run GSB. If you don't get a reply here you could try to log-in to #gsb on
Gnome slackbuilds isn't directly supported by Slackware, but, it is a very good version of gnome for Slackware in my opinion.
Here's a link from the GSB website that may be of help to you.
