Does anyone recall that back in the days of OS 9, you could create an alias on the desktop from an item on an ejectable disk, eject the drive, and the alias would disappear from the desktop? And if you remounted the disk somewhere else, your item would appear on that desktop? Is there a way to get that functionality under OS X? I'm carrying around all these flash drives and it would be great if I could pop one in and, presto, get a shortcut on the desktop to a specific file. I tried creating an alias and dragging it to the desktop, but it stayed after I ejected the disk and did not appear when I mounted it on another computer.
