Question Newbie - Creating drive icon on desktop (SUSE Gnome)

Very new to Linux (openSUSE 10.3) - I think I need to run mount and edit Fstab

my fstab file looks like..

/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST380021A_3HV1Q7X3-part2 / ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST380021A_3HV1Q7X3-part3 /home ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST380021A_3HV1Q7X3-part1 swap swap defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
/dev/md0 /local ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2

I want to create a icon in my computer (Nautulis) for and on the desktop for /dev/md0 (md0 is a RAID1)

thank you

If you're using KDE, right click the desktop -> create new -> link to device. Then point it to /local, which is where /dev/md0 is mounted.
There is also an option in the Control Center that automatically puts shortcuts to mounted fs in your desktop (KDE 3.5).
