Folder Hierarchy + Dock Question

I am trying to see if I can place the highest folder in the Finder in the Dock. This is the folder with the computer's name on it, and it will list your iDisk, Hard Drive, and Network panes within it. I found that showing invisible files with Main Menu allows me to drag a "Volumes" folder to the Dock, but it does not have the Network folder in it from what I can tell. I just want a "master" folder in my dock with my most accessed folders right next to it. I can get my iDisk, Hard Drive, and then that Volumes folder in the dock, but I can't get that one computer folder with my laptop's icon on it there. I could stick the Volumes folder in the dock, paste the computer icon onto it, and use it, but that's not the same.

Some more info: I've got 10.5.4 on this MBP. I don't think I need to list system specs but I can if needed. Assistance appreciated.
