I was trying to figure out how to hide my Boot Camp NTFS drive icon from my desktop, and after some searching I discovered a relatively simple 4-step process. If your Boot Camp drive is FAT32, you can skip the first 2 steps, and begin with step 3. Install MacFUSE. This is a Google project that allows you to mount other file systems on your desktop, including even things like SSH and FTP. Install the NTFS–3G plugin for MacFUSE, which will allow us to not only read, but also write to NTFS drives.
