    Got a possibly silly question to ask here. In my finder, I'm seeing several Shared folders that should not be there. They were apparently added when I hooked up a friend's external hdds to transfer some files, and now it appears they cannot be removed. Is there a way in Leopard to remove all items that appear under "shared" in Finder? Or, some other way to remove these?

    Have you tried dragging them out of the sidebar?

    Or, you can disable the display of "Shared" through Finder > Preferences, then click on the Sidebar tab. Under "Shared" you can select which types of shared volumes you wish to be displayed in the sidebar.

    I tried dragging, but none are able to be dragged out of the sidebar. Deleting doesn't seem to be an apparent option, which is weird.

    Right, but it's not that I don't want to see these in the finder, I don't want there to be "shared" exposures on my computer. In other words, I'm trying to remove these HDD's / systems as being shared with my machine. Do you know how I can go about getting that done?

    shared on the bar on the left side of the finder denotes other computers on your network that you CAN connect to. It does not mean that you are connected at the present time. If you are, you will also see an eject button to the right of each computer. If you don't want to see them at all, hit the triangle next to the word shared.
