Choice A:
Browse to devices:/ in Konqueror. You could even drag that URL to your desktop 
or panel.

Choice B:
There's a program that runs as an icon in your systray that allows you to 
easily mount and unmount filesystems. I don't have it installed, but I think 
it's called kwikdisk.

Choice C:
You can manually create icons for mountable devices and throw them wherever 
you'd like. For example: Right-click on the desktop, and choose Create New -> 
Device and then the device type. Then you can fill in the filename of the 
device (under the device tab).
