In fvwm-crystal, I added localized support for them as 2 pictures icons
on the desktop. Dual png icons are not well supported in Linux, only
the first pic will be shown in a very few pic viewers, but with fvwm,
a lot of things are possible. 

When clicking on them, it will launch any file manager according to
some preference settings (even console apps like mc and custom commands
are supported). It is also possible to show the externally mounted
drives/partitions, and to show/hyde them on thy fly from the main menu.
