The actual URL is x-nautilus-desktop://, but usage is discouraged. You
can just set the gconf show_desktop flag to false and open the desktop
(defaults to ~/Desktop) in its own browser or spatial window. To put
icons where you want arbitrarily, right click->Arrange by->Manually.
Mounted volumes already show up in computer:///, so there's no real
reason to duplicate that in the browser/spatial window (and frankly
IMO it's kind of silly on the regular desktop, but I guess most
distros ship that way by default). No real   necessary.
