    Do you mean that beside the linux partitions you have three partitions
    belonging to a windows OS also on your system? And that they are mounted
    somewhere? Why do you want to see them on your desktop? You do not see
    /, /home or other partitions you may have on your desktop, do you? All
    partitions together make one great filetree and you can use this without
    really knowing wich file is on which partition.

    When you want a link from your desktop to any place in that big tree
    (including a place that by accident happens to be the place where a NTFS
    filesystem is mounted) you can do so by right-clicking on the desktop >
    make new > link to location (KDE on 10.3, must be about the same on
    other combinations).

    to whom it may concern:

    i am neither interested in nor do i want someone's opinion as to why i
    want or don't want something on my desktop. i want it there because i
    want it there, that's the only reason i need. i posted here in hopes of
    receiving an intelligent response to my question, not personal opinions.
    in the future please refrain from responding to my questions.

    Just create a new launcher in the desktop. Rigth click on a empty area
    on desktop, select "create a launcher" (I don't know if this is the
    exact translation, because I'm using spanish locale), then in type
    select "place" or "path" (again, one of both may show), then enter
    /windows/c in the text control. Do it again for others partitions.

    Hi
    You need to select 'Location' in the dropdown box at the top first, eg;

    Type: Location
    Name: Windows C Drive
    Command: /windows/C
