Ivory Partition Icon on the Desktop

    Is there any way to get the Ivory Partition of a Mac Ivory disk do be
    mounted without its icon on the desktop.

    I think it was like that on the Ivory Beta release we had here, but I am not

    There is no point at all (except confusing the users) to have this
    icon siting here.

I'm surprised to hear this.  We had a loaner MacIvory running the
released version of 7.3 and it made the file invisible.  Not only that,
but when I used ResEdit to make it visible the MacIvory wouldn't boot!
I complained about this to Symbolics, and was told that they wanted it
this way.

In any case, the answer to your question is to use Fedit, ResEdit, or
any other file hacking application or DA to set the Invisible bit in the
file's Finder Info.
