Description of problem:
I installed FC3 on my notebook, and created (excluding / and
swap-partition) a ext3 and a vfat partition, which were not shown by
nautilus in the computer icon. i had to add the "users-option" in
/etc/fstab for this entries. 

LABEL=/mnt/data   /mnt/data           ext3    defaults   1 2     
/dev/hda3         /mnt/vfat           vfat    defaults   0 0

LABEL=/mnt/data   /mnt/data           ext3    users,defaults   1 2     
/dev/hda3         /mnt/vfat           vfat    users,defaults   0 0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome 2.8 (12.10.04), 

How reproducible:

I had a problem, not exactly the same but very close.
check this:

Basically, I configure the partitions in /etc/fstab and they show up
in the Computer window but when mounting them they doesn't show up on
the desktop.  /apps/nautilus/desktop/volumes_visible is set to true.

May be this is related to another issue I had.  I mounted a photo
camera in the USB port, it asked me if I wanted import the pictures, I
hitted Cancel but there was no icon on the desktop to browse the files
with nautilus.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.
This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora
Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version
for which this bug is confirmed.

Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only.  Please install a still supported version and retest.  If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
