    Bascially as in the thread title.
    I've got 4 partitions on a MyBook Pro through firewire 800, and I want them to appear in 1 place on my desktop only. Instead, when I plug it in, it throws them down the right. I have a variety of icons that swap around with gaps and stuff (so I know what I'm currently working on, and what still to do). But when the drive plugs in, they fill in "scattered" around in the holes", and as all 4 icons have the same orange icons, I have to search for the right one every time. I know it's picky, but I just wanted to know if it was possible....
