Ick. (No offense.) So long as they're removable. It's very rare
on my machine that I actually care about physical drives -- I think
in the last five or six years of using *nix I've used a floppy other
than a boot floppy no more than two or three times, and a CD-ROM
other than a bootable installation/rescue CD about the same. I like
the vaguely Evolution-esque mockup that mdew put up better, with
the sidebar, particularly if the sidebar's modifiable.
