    I just got done installing windows xp on my new macbook and i want to change the name of the windows partitioned drive from Untitled to Windows HD. Also how do i change the the icon for it too? Cause i just changed the icon for the Macintosh HD but it wont work for the windows partition? Is it cause the file permission is read only?

    You can rename the drive from within Windows. Don't know about the icon.

    If you want to hide the icon altogether, name it .something, with a period in front.
