Description of problem:
On a dual boot (RHEL 4, FC3) x86_64 box with scsi disks nautilus shows
icons for both SCSI disks on the desktop. sda is the whole disk while
sdb is just the boot partition.
Setup details: EM64T with scsi disks. FC3 is installed on sda. RHEL4
is installed on sdb. On booting into FC3 I have icons for scsidisk and
scsidisk1. scsidisk is the same as filesystem (sda). scsidisk1 is the
boot partition only of sdb.
Additionally opening "Computer" shows filesystem, scsidisk, and scsidisk1.
This all seems a bit redundant and confusing ...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a system configured to dual boot with scsidisk (one install
per disk as noted above).
2. Boot into install on first disk.
Actual Results: See duplication of filesystems on desktop and in
Expected Results: No mounts of the disks other than filesystem in the
will attach screenshot ...

This is really a hal issue. I think with the most recent versions of
hal we don't create user mounts for all local disks, so this should
not happen. At least this change is being worked on and will go in soon.
