hdd keeps showing up on my desktop

I have this hdd partition that has my EEE pc things. It keeps showing up on my desktop and I dont ever need it. How can I make it so it wont ever show up? I can unmount it but thats only temporary.


oh, I think I found it. went to partition in YAST and selected the partition then selected do not mount.

But will this effect my windows xp?

Not mounting a partition into openSUSE shouldn’t have any effect on the windows installation.
