Flash Drive on Desktop in KDE

Sorry for the extra post, I meant to combine the two, but I completely forgot. Recent load has my memory fried.


In Gnome when I mount my flash [jumpdrive] drive (by going to computer and the right-clicking flash -> mount) an icon for it appears on the desktop. Is there a way to implement this in KDE? I see the flashdrive under devices and can mount/unmount it, but I would like for it to show up on my desktop. Or, it could be like the floppy drive where (in KDE) it's always there and I can mount from the desktop - that's actually the idea situation.

Any ideas?

Thank you so much!

Just right click on the desktop and choose Create New-> Hard drive. Then in the device tab, choose the correct fstab entry. You can obviously change the icon name and title as well.
