Hello João,

KDE 3.4 has inbuilt functionality for this using the media:// kio slave, 
hal, udev and D-BUS. Either just use the media:// kio slave or configure 
the desktop which device symbols it should display (context menu from 
desktop, "Behaviour/Device symbols" or something like that, have it in

For KDE 3.3 you can use usbmount and hook in a script that puts an icon on 
the desktop. I have made one that I can send to you.
