desktop icons for drives with option "user"

I have just "upgraded" from RH9 to fedora core 1 (most updates applied). I use gnome. I was forced to install nautilus which I had so far avoided through multiple RH versions. I really do not like all the automated icons (start here, home, trash ....) and while by removing everything from ~/Desktop and changing some options for nautilus with the gconf-editor I have got rid of most of these, I am left with gnome putting a disk icon for drives mounted with the "user" option. I don't need these, I don't want these, and am hoping someone can tell me how to avoid this annoying MS windows like behaviour. I don't really want to "turn off desktop" because I do like having a root menu.

Any ideas?
