    I just turned on my macbook and I don't see the harddrive icon on the desktop. It was working perfectly fine last night. This is werid =\ do I have to reinstall Leopard all over again?

    Go to Finder > Preferences, and under the General tab make sure 'Hard disks' is selected under 'Show these items on the Desktop', as well as in the Sidebar tab.

    It was already ticked in both General and Side Tab.

    Thanks for trying to help me. I appreciate it. I did some googling and found out the solution.

    The problem was that my harddisk became invisible. That's all.

    All I did was launch ScriptEditor and pasted this:
    Code:
    tell application "System Events"
    set visible of disk "NameofDisk" to true
    end tell
    
    tell application "Finder" to quit
    delay 1
    tell application "Finder" to launch
    Then hit Compile then finally Run.
    * Replace NameofDisk with the actual name of your disk

    The article is here: http://www.pinkmutant.com/articles/invisible.html

    I can see the harddisk again. w00t!
