I'd like to understand how this works, because my CDRW does exactly what you 
want - I have no icon if the drive isn't in its bay, an unmounted Icon most 
of the time, and a mounted icon when it's actually in use.  I got that 
behaviour entirely accidentally.  The unmounted floppy icon is _always_ on 
the desktop, even though it shares the bay with the CDRW, so at most one of 
them should be on my desktop.
