Yes you can, it's easy.

Just right click on your desktop->New->Shortcut.

When it asks you where the shortcut should link to type <Drive Letter>:/ (eg D:/).

Highlight the drive in Computer, then right click and "Create shortcut". That works in Vista - not certain though about Windows 7 because I do not currently have a running Windows 7 system to check it out.

Open "Computer", drag any partition you want to desktop...
