Question Maybe it's just not possible

That's the same gconf-editor/Configuration editor I used earlier and the results were the same; I tried again, after opening it using the alt+f2 command launcher. There was no listing for show_volumes/volumes_visible or any variation. I really did check everything associated with desktop, and more. Maybe gnome has just changed since you last used it.

It could be that I am using Gnome in Debian. Both Dreamlinux and Ubuntu are Debian OS. And, as I mentioned before, Ubuntu (gnome desktop) default mounts any new partitions and drives on the desktop. The same may be true for Dreamlinux as well. I guess there may be no way around it. I really wish there were, because it needlessly takes up space on my desktop, when it's already mounted in home in its own directory.

Thanks for trying! I appreciate it.
