I'm doing this room the second time through, and can't figure out how to place the decoys. Any general hints?

EDIT: Blech, I forgot order of placement can effect the room.

I can't figure out what to do in this room at all. I presume I need to use the rattlesnake somehow to protect me from getting killed by the roach when I hit the orb at the top, but if I do that the snake just gets me instead. Whattodo?

I left the serpent in the maze on my first trip through this room.

How did you do that? -_- I thought that you had to lure the snake out first time through.

I never knew this... and I've been playing (on and off) for about two years or more now!! Is this the secret to completing this room?

I'm on my second time through, and am really struggling with placing my four decoys. I have identified

Please could someone help me by telling me where to place the decoys, and in what order. I feel as if I've tried every combination (though I obviously haven't or I'd have found the answer!).

Please be kind to a feeble old lady -- OK, not so old, and not so feeble... but definitelya lady! :D

Order of placement is generally used as a last-resort tie-breaker in DROD -- if two choices are otherwise completely equal (eg two roaches wanting to move into the same square, two decoys both exactly the same distance from a creature), the oldest one wins. That goes back even to when the architect was placing monsters in the editor (although rooms which depend heavily on design-time placement order are pretty bad form).

That said:
