A drawing area widget is just a blank space with no features to speak of; 
to make it do something like this, you'll have to know Gtk and Gdk very
well. To do something like you're describing will be a PITA.

It sounds to me like you want either GnomeIconList or GnomeCanvas. Either
of those will probably save you enormous amounts of code. If you can't
stand to use the Gnome libraries you could cut-and-paste the code.
