Where is 'computer' physically located? And can I add stuff in it? (GNOME)

On the desktop there is an icon of a computer and below it it says 'Computer', when you click it there pops up a window with the title 'computer', in it there is Floppy, CD-ROM, Filesystem and Network.

Now, if this is a directory, where is it located? Is it possible to add a link in it to /mnt/hdb1/ somehow for example?
