I don't know an elegant and correct way. Sorry.
There are two very ugly ways:
1. Put the address(es) in “~/.gtk-bookmarks”. I don't know how to
pass the Username and Password automatically, but try this, it
might work: “ftp://username:email@example.com”.
2. Prevent Nautilus from displaying *all* Volume devices on the
Desktop (that's *ALL* in case you missed it!). Here's the way:
“gconftool-2 -s -t boolean /apps/nautilus/desktop/volumes_visible false”
to revert back to the normal Nautilus behavior:
“gconftool-2 -s -t boolean /apps/nautilus/desktop/volumes_visible true”.
