10.5: Create a Stack of mounted disks and shares System 10.5
If you want to have all your mounted disks/shares -- actually the content of the /Volumes folder in one stack, you have to drag the /Volumes folder onto the Stacks area from the dock, but the /Volumes folder is invisible.

However, you can reach invisible folders in the Finder with the Go -> Go to Folder menu command (Shift-Command-G). Use that menu, then enter /Volumes in the dialog box that appears. When the folder appears in the Finder, drag it to the right side of the dock to create a Volumes stack.

[robg adds: Of course, this would be much more useful if you could then navigate the pop-up drive list as you could in 10.4.]

Earlier builds of 10.5 ie. pre 9A499 you could navigate down through folders in stacks. Don't know why they removed the feature. I submitted feed back that I liked the feature. I also have not found the preference location for the stacks.

Incidentally, NONE of my folders are invisible, and this was from an Erase and Install. Anybody else seeing this? Have to do with having X11 installed?

Off-Topic...
I found this somewhere, it worked for me:

I finally fixed this problem by running:

sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a V /bin
sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a V /cores
sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -P -a V /etc
sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a V /mach_kernel
sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a V /private
sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a V /sbin
sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -P -a V /tmp
sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a V /usr
sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a V /Volumes
sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -P -a V /var

then deleting /Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices* (2 files) and rebooting.

Most of the files/folders became invisible right after running SetFile. The symbolic links (/etc, /tmp and /var) became invisible after the reboot.
