im bored as hell with my desktop and i want to change the hd icon somehow, i already changed the name but i have seen some peoples desktops with different icons....just seeing if anyone wants to spurt me some info...thanks
Icon sets can be found on many sites... first place to look is using your own Apple menu -> Mac OS X Software... There you can find a whole category of "Icons, Screensavers, etc."
To change them there are several 3rd party software to install icon sets, but if you just want to change a few, including the HD icon, then it might be easier to do it manually:
Select the file/folder with the icon you like and choose "Get Info" (from the File menu, right/ctrl-click or cmd-I), then click on the icon (it gets a blue shade) and Copy (from Edit menu or cmd-C). Mark the object you want to change the icon of, open the "Get info"-window for that, click the icon and Paste (using the Edit menu or cmd-V).
To remove a custom icon, just open "Get info"-window, click icon and press Backspace...
