I haven't been following this closely, but my impression is that Marti 
has some NTFS formatted drives, containing her tunes and whatever other 
dark mysteries, and she wants access to them. She expected there to be 
icons on the desktop, and there are not, so how can she find them? 
Additionally, she thinks she has no /etc/fstab file. She is using the 
Kubuntu desktop on 7.04 Ubuntu. Is that all correct, Marti?

If so, she needs help:
1. Reading/writing ntfs drives
2. Placing icons on the Kubuntu desktop

The search for /etc/fstab is sort of secondary, it seems to me.

Now, this is the place where I am helpful, except that I opened this 
session in Ubuntu just for giggles, and I don't remember what has to be 
done in Kubuntu to accomplish these two things. If someone could help 
her out, that would be great. Otherwise, I'll be in Kubuntu later and 
maybe I can help.
