floppy and cd-rom desktop icons in Red Hat 7.3

With Red Hat 7.3 using KDE, there are no floppy and CD-ROM icons on my Desktop.

I know in Red Hat 7.2 there were these icons, and I would just left-click on the icon and it would automatically mount the drive and bring up a filesystem browser to view the contents. When I was done, I would just right-click on select "Unmount".

But like I said, in Red Hat 7.3 these icons aren't on my Desktop at all. Does anyone know what the issue is? Thanks.

IIRC, you can add these icons to your KDE desktop by rightclicking on the desktop and adding these items by yourself. I can't recall exactly, but it may also be possible to add these icons by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting (something similar to) default icons.

Try this:
R-click blank area of desktop and select Create New from the menu.You should see options for cd-rom device and floppy device.
When you choose,say,cd-rom device,a dialog box with tabs will appear-choose the device tab and click on the drop-down menu arrow next to device to choose which cd-rom you want a desktop icon for.
That should do it.HTH
