noticed this not just with ubuntu but with mandriva too.
heres the scenario. I use Hd1 for my linux, Hd2 is my WinXP partition, and Hd3 is a usb 500 gig. I usually get on GNOME first then install XFCe 4.4.2

everytime i go on xfce i notice i only see my usb 500 gig hd mounted while my Hd2 (winxp) never gets mounted. It mounts in Gnome though

This is for both distro's so i know it must be a Xfce problem..

Any ideas? Thanks
