Can someone please help me, I'm not sure how to add icons for each hard drive, the floppy and cd-rom on the desktop.
I did this before but my old system got fried and I can't recall the text you need in the launcher...?

I mean I know how to add program launchers but I'm not sure the syntax to use for each drive.

I'm using xfce and compiz, vectorlinux 6.0 standard.

Thanks in advance for any help...

The syntax for the drive is probably /media/hdx where x is the drive letter. Try browsing to the drive you want to make an icon for in your file manager and see what the path is.

The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

No in /media there is hd, hd0 and hd1 folders. All are blank...

This is on my non root account, thats what I'm generally using.

I think I did this before with thunar. I figured out the boot drive with thunar its

thunar /

But I don't know what to do about the other hard drives...

You may have to get Vector to boot the drives at startup.  You can follow this tut and see if it helps.
mounting other partitions or drives.
