    is there a way to get all the disks that finder puts on the desktop to be in one dock icon?

    i am currently using hierarchical dock, so the annoying stack feature won't be a hindrance. but come to think of it, the stack feature would work nice for the disks dock icon.

    In Finder:

    Click the Go Menu -> Go To Folder... -> /Volumes -> Go

    Drag the icon from the titlebar to the Dock.

    There is also a hidden (disabled) stack that Apple apparently decided not to use. It is already there in the OS, but you have to enable it. It gives you one stack that you can change from Recent Apps, Recent Docs, Recent Servers, Favorite Volumes and Favorite Items. I really did not need it for anything other than the Volumes which is what you are asking about. I have enabled it and it works great. Not sure why Apple did not enable it with the release of Leopard, but...

    Anyway, here is how you do it. It is very easy. Just one terminal command will enable it.

    functionally, this is the better method as it includes network shares. visually, it seems to show all my mounted volumes as network shares except for the startup volume.

    The hidden Apple method is nice, but for some reason it shows my computer and my HD with the same name. Clicking the computer one does nothing, so is there a way to get it out of there?
