Ill try that when I get into the office where I can label the thumbdrive

>From what you are saying [ ... desktop icon ... ] it sound like this is a 
feature of the Desktop (Gnome) and not of the OS.  
In particular, Im currently running TWM on this machine and plugging
in the thumdrive does nothing.  no mount.  It used to mount under /media
with the name of the drive manufacturer...  
Ill try gnome after I finish reading mail.
