Default How to remove some mounted partition icons?

Hi,
I have Fedora 8 and on the gnome desktop I see some icons from my
partitions that I don't wan't on my gnome desktop.

I don't have a problem with having my storage partition on my desktop
but I also have also 4 other linux distos on my laptop and I see all
of their system partitions on my desktop!

I know that there is a way to disable ALL partition shortcuts but then
I wouldn't see my usb drives on desktop when I plug in usb flash
drives and I don't want that.

So how do I remove only the shortcuts I don't want from my desktop?

I saw an Ubuntu (which obviously also uses Gnome) trick which doesn't
work on fedora
On ubuntu only drives that are in /media are shown on the gnome desktop.
I edited /etc/fstab so that partitions I don't want on desktop are
mounted in /mnt - that worked on my Ubuntu but it didn't work in
Fedora

And ideas?

Thank you

What does /var/lib/PolicyKit contain?

Yes, this is a problem on Fedora 8 due to, I think, policykit. It
seems that after you've given authorization to always mount a
partition there is no way (in the GUI at least) to say "I want to
revoke the authorization I gave to mount this partition".

I don't mind mounting all partition, I don't have problem with that, I
just don't want to see icons of all mounted partition on my desktop,
only those I choose.
