I've put icons on my KDE3 desktop to automaticly mount my cdrom drives and my floppy drive. It works perfectly.

While browsing through the icons I found two icons for nfs shares, one for umounted and one for mounted shares.
Now I wonder how do I add such a link to my desktop? When I create a new CD/DVD link and want to select my nfs share in that fstab list from the link properties, the nfs entry is not listed there though I've added it to my etc/fstab and it works if I mount it manually.

Not the easiest around, but autofs can be a decent solution: not only it mounts your shares on-demand, but you can easily configure mount locations, i.e. you can have a link to a folder on your desktop for accessing an nfs share.

Moved from Desktop Environments to Unsupported Software as KDE3 is no longer supported.
