Mac Specs: 15" MacBook Pro 2.33 ghz, 3gb RAM, 160gb 7200 RPM HD

I run a PC network that includes a 250gb NAS drive. I connect to it using "smb" and it works great. Before Leopard I would always have an icon on my desktop once I connected to it. Now, I just get a Finder window, and when I close it, I need to reconnect again, which I can't, because it says it is in use. I need to log off and back on to get the connection. Is there a way to get the icon back on my desktop? TIA!

QUOTE Thanks
