"Sarge" is the version of the Debian GNU/Linux OS.
"Gnome" is a Desktop Environment (DE, like KDE is also)....one can
have/use *both* at the same time...  are you by chance using a LiveCD

Is it possible that Gnome (like KDE), defaults to *show* only "certain"
Device Icons for certain device types? Such as: in KDE Desktop config,
one can enable/disable the 'showing' of a whole assortment of unmounted
and/or mounted device types (CDROMs, HDDs, 5.25" Floppy drives, ZIP
disks, NFS Resource, Samba, Printers, etc).

~$ mount
will (should?) show you all your currently mounted devices, IIRC

If not - another guess is you need an entry in /etc/fstab perhaps(?) -
note; I'm not too familiar with the way [udev, d-bus, hal] work...but
please post your Kernel version. Look up [Message-ID:
clcei3-9l6.ln1@eniac.xs4all.nl] on
http://groups.google.com/advanced_search?q=&; for more about that.

Output of; 
~$ uname -a 
should be fine for that kernel info, and output of 
~$ cat /etc/fstab 
for your current entries
