[vox] Debian "System" Icon

Last year Pete Salzman posted a request on Vox-Tech asking how to set up a 
Windows-like "My Computer" icon in KDE on Debian.  Bill Kendrick posted the 
directions.  I followed Bill's directions and set up a "My Computer" icon on 
my Debian system.

Then a couple of days ago I was playing around with the adduser command and, 
as might be expected, ended up setting up a new account in Debian.  So 
tonight I was playing around configuring some things in the new account, and 
I noticed a "System" icon on the desktop.  I had no idea what it was and 
clicked on it.

The first thing you see are some icons.  Clicking an icon brings up other 
icons.  The icons appear to be from the KDE Control Center, so it looks 
somewhat like SuSE's YAST.  One of the icons is "Media Storage."  When you 
click on "Media Storage" you get the CD Rom drives, Floppy drives, hard 
drives, etc.  The Debian "System" icon has a lot more stuff than the SuSE 9.2 
"My Computer" icon that was automatically set up on this machine.

Debian is really starting to grow on me.
