Why not just use CMD-SHIFT-G and goto /Volumes/

then drag that hidden icon to the dock?

I now have a fully functional /Volumes folder in my dock that adds and removes network drives on the fly.

What am I missing here?

I tried adding the /Volumes folder to the Dock as you suggested. I am able to see a newly mounted hard drive or CD in the popup menu but cannot navigate to any folders or files on it!

You're right. I forgot to check it after seeing that it was mounted!

I was thinking the exact same thing. I used CMD+SHIFT+G to go to the /Volumes folder and then CMD+OPTION dragged it to my Favorites folder to make an alias. Pasted a custom icon on it an then dragged it to my Dock. Sometimes people like to do things the hard way I guess...
