Other ways; afp

Although I can't verify this (OS 8.6 at work), you could also make an alias to the iDisk. put it in your startup Items folder (may have to be created), then put the password to it into the Keychain and set the finder to always have access. The one thing that won't work the same is the alias will force a window to open with the iDisk contents.

The drawback to AFP (apple filing protocol) as other comments stated is the iDisk cannot remain mounted on the machine. Apple has a max connection time.

Using AppleScript is the easiest way:

tell application "Finder"
open location "afp://[username:password][username]"
end tell
