There are various posts from people who have experienced this. It may be related to use of FileVault, TechTool Pros 'eDisk', or attempts to hide a disk partition by using a Terminal command. At least one user found that simply logging out and in again removed it. One person suggested using a Terminal command to remove it:
sudo rm ~/Desktop/"client node"
I don't know whether this is either effective or risky (certainly be careful to type it exactly or copy it in).

The client node file appeared on my desktop after I installed a Brother printer. The way to get rid of it - at least this worked for me - is to go to the force quit option in the Apple menu and relaunch finder. The file just disappeared.
Anybody know what this is, though?13" MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.1), 2.53GHz
