Computer file wtf?? Do you mean like My Computer from Windows? Make the command something like 'nautilus --no-desktop' or 'konqueror', depending on whether you use GNOME or KDE.

Ok, maybe my last post was a bit vague, i'm using FC4. By default it loads up in gnome with a computer icon on the desktop. When you click that it shows you all the devices and file systems that are mounted, its handy, but i want it off the desktop(which i can do) and onto my startbar desklet (which i can not).
