Question Adding a desktop icon for a device?

I am trying to handle a SCSI device as a removable device. Can I, and if so how do I, make the system to automatically add a desktop icon for the device when mounted and remove the icon when the device is unmounted? I am using Redhat and Gnome version 2.16.0.

See if this helps: run 'gconf-editor', then 'apps', 'nautilus', 'desktop', tick 'volumes_visible'

Thanks for your reply! I assume this also will display all my HDDs? Furthermore, I assume the SCSI device will be shown as long as it is attached even though not yet mounted?
