I'm fairly certain you can make an Alias of it to use, and rename the Alias to anything you want. You can also frag it to the Dock between Applications & Trash for a quiker access.
On the not showing mounted volumes opening in a Window, there were a couple of ways posted in this very Forum a few months ago, but I'm on dial-up and Apple anything is very unfriendly to dial-up... sometimes takes 15 minutes just to login here!
I did find a thread that stated that a window always opens when a volume is mounted, and the workaround was to make an Applescript to close the window. Not the most elegant, but I suppose it will work.
As for creating an alias, yes, that will work, but once the volume is mounted, another icon will appear (the "real" item) with whatever name it assigns itself (which is what I'm trying to change). A (again not too elegant) workaround here would be to disable all connected servers showing up on the Desktop, which will just leave the alias displayed.
Guess I'll use these for now unless anyone else has suggestions!
I haven't tried this with an iDisk per se (coz I don't have iDisk), but I have done it with a network mounted volume (Finder | Go | Connect to Server ⌘k or Finder | Go | Network ⇧⌘k), and that is once it's been successfully mounted and you've gotten through the username/password prompts, drag the mounted-on-the-Desktop icon to the Dock, then, in the future, it's simply a double-click operation to mount on demand.
