This should be easy but I can't seem to get it!


My 3 year old keeps ejecting my drives because they exist as icons on the desktop.


I'd like to remove those drive icons from my desktop but still show them as mounted in my finder sidebar.


Can anyanyone help?





iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2), 16G of RAM, Pegasus R4
