Press Alt+F2 and run gconf-editor. Go to apps - nautilus - desktop and then tick the box "computer_icon_visible"

To prevent drives from showing up on the desktop untick "volumes_visible"

open a terminal and enter...


gconf-editor

in the window that opens click the arrow next to apps then scroll down to nautilus and click that arrow then click the desktop folder in the window there should be an option to show home folder check it and you're set.
